Hi Mike, welcome to Permies (nice name by the way). I'm thinking that is either a norway maple or a sugar maple. Both of which get to be 70+ feet tall. If that's your house in the background, I think it's too close. If you have a one story (with the drip edge of the roof towards the tree), it might be ok but it would need some pruning/shaping to keep from rubbing against the house.

Thanks Mike. Those homes in the background are actually across the street. My house is behind me in the picture and is no more than 15 feet away from the tree. It sounds like I'm relocating this tree.
