Does anyone recognize this plant? It appeared a couple weeks ago under my cherry and cedar trees.

It's about 12 inches tall. You can see another one coming up next to him. Altogether we have a dozen or so of these.

its a mystery dave, but looking at the leaves, it may well be a cedar seedling, leaves look about right, reddish stems ?, if so dave start pulling them up, pull them and pot them till you know for sure.

Cedar? How can that be? This is definitely a deciduous shrub/tree and the cedars are, of course, evergreen.

Confused,

Is it cottonwood? We had trees like that in the yard when I was a kid. They popped up everywhere and had fuzzy seed things on them like caterpillars. (doesn't that really sound like a professional nurseryman to you?)

Dave... I don't think it's a cedar either, but it looks like a familiar appalachian seedling. Have to think on it a bit... Probably not cottonwood as I thought they typically do not grow here.

My guess would be one of the birches or hawthorns. Do they grow by you?

And why couldn't it be a baby cherry tree?

Cedar: Sometimes the most obvious answers are often overlooked. Of course these are cherry seedlings. The foliage is identical to the parent and, under the cherry tree, there are literally hundreds of these plants.

Problem solved!! They are cherry seedlings!
