We are located in the Midwest. Trying to identify this tree. It has grown up under a cedar and not sure which we want to keep. Thank you!

Looks more like a mulberry to me (they don't all have lobed leaves). Can you get a closeup of the buds on the twig by any chance?

I agree with Anne. The vein structures are wrong for mulberry.

definitely a type of poplar.
 
Roses are red, violets are blue. Some poems rhyme and some don't. And some poems are a tiny ad.
