That's assuming the leaves are actually from the same tree, Nick.
A nice clean closeup of the bark would be really helpful. Cutting a thin round off the end of the trunk, and sanding it till it's nice and clean/smooth will also be a helpful closeup pic.
Going into any of the backyards around here (1/2 acre lots) would be like a trip to a botanical garden in terms of the amazing variety of ornamental tree species planted out.
Maples alone would be astounding if you treat each different A. japonica as separate species! We have at least a 1/2 doz. ourselves not including the Big Leaf maples.
