Our yard has so many tree seedlings that I've considered going into business selling them-mostly oaks, a few maples, a couple hollies, and magnolias. If I don't know what something is, I let it grow until I figure out what it is and whether it's a good thing or bad thing. (In the case of our invasive vines--bad thing). Now that we experienced a tree nearly smashing our house, I'm more prone to wanting to cut down the seedlings before they get too well established. I noticed a bunch of new seedlings popping up, and decided to figure out what it was. I found a good website which leads me to believe this is a tulip poplar. The VTreeID website says these can grow to be over 100 feet tall. I don't think I like the idea of 100 foot trees growing within 20 feet of our house.
