That's a maple tree - could be Norway Maple. It is a monster of a tree. Needs lots and lots of space. They suck every drop of water from your garden and steal water from other plants. They belong out in the meadow someplace - not really suited for the average garden.

Yes remove it and look out for others. If you have a sycamore nearby you'll get lots of them

It's a sycamore tree. Belongs to the same family as Maple and Acer. I get lots of them from seeds in the hedgerows.
