Huge Leaves - Tree Identification

Good morning,

Back in Seventh Grade we studied different types of trees that grow in Ohio.  We didn't have the Internet then so our research was in text books and at the library.

I don't remember all of the things I learned back then so I tried to find the name of this tree on line without any luck.
Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?
I wear a size 9 shoe.  That is one huge leaf!

Do you know what kind of tree this is?

 Thanks!
Lois

That is one huge leaf indeed, no idea about the tree though. Greetings!

Hi, Lois. It looks like Bigleaf Magnolia (Magnolia macrophylla). It certainly is an attractive tree.

Thank you, Steve!

Your expert input was exactly what was needed here. :)

All the very best,
Lois
