This tree seems to have been planted as part of the landscape so it is not wild or necessarily native. At this time there are no leaves but plenty of propeller seeds. Seeds are red and I haven't seen red ones before. The Maples I know have green propeller seeds. I am guessing this is maybe a Japanese Maple cultivar. Tell me if I am lost as usual. Trees are in full sun and are about 20' tall

That would be a grand Acer rubrum - Red Maple.

If you were to access a book or a website on maples, you'd see where you could sort through a good many of them just by the angle that the two halves of the "propeller seeds" make.
