Hello all,

I was hoping one of you could help me ID this volunteer tree (could be a shrub but I don't think so) that showed up at my place. It came up in an partially shaded bed that I'm not actively managing at the moment - just letting "weeds" improve it for me until I'm ready to start planting in it.

I'd say elm.  But there are hundreds of leaves out there with a serrated edge.  More time needed to make a positive ID.

Don't tend to see elm in my area but poplar would make sense. There are some down the street from me - not sure what type though. Thanks all - I will keep watching it and try transplanting it in the fall. It is currently growing near my house.

Looks like Rosaceae. Serviceberry is my guess.
