I am in the PNW zone 8 greater Seattle area. I have a bunch of sprouts that I do not know what they are or if I should pull them. Pictures 1-3 are in very shaded area of my garden. The last picture is in a full sun location. I noticed all the sprouts in the beginning of April and have been trying to wait to determine if I can figure out what they are to know if I should let them grow or pull them fast!

I can take more pictures if these do not do justice. I have not seen these sprouts before.

Any advice/ID greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

In the 3rd picture I am referring to the sprout to the left of the Japanese painted fern! I realized my 3rd photo may be a little confusing.. sorry!

Are you referring to the same seedling in pictures 1, 2 & 3?
Looks like an Indian Plum to me. Are they leaves lime green in color?

yadavgard, yes the same seedling in 1,2,3! Well, there are two seedlings that look different, in the close up in #1 & 2, both a chartreuse/lime green color.

The seedling in picture #4 is different.

Oh well, to me in pic 1-2 the left seedling looks a lot like the apricot saplings I have seen.
A close-up would help.
Not sure you have fruiting trees around.
And in pic 4 definitely a chestnut.

#4 seems to be Aesculus hippocastanum, not Castanea.
#3 The plant between the two ferns looks like Ranunculus, maybe R. aconitifolius or maybe Astrantia sp.
But Looks very similar like a Geranium, too.
