Thread OP

A friend is trying to figure out what this plant is. I've attached photos.

That looks like a seedling from a nut tree. Possibly pecan or American chestnut.

The only other seedling I have seen that resembles your picture is Ailanthus, commonly called Tree of Heaven, a very invasive tree.

Where is this tree located? It looks like a Buckeye seedling.

Note the alternate arrangement of buds/leaves along the stem - cannot be an Aesculus sp.

Moon was on the right track. This is a nut tree, and in fact it's a Carya sp. - likely Carya ovata (Shagbark Hickory) or Carya laciniosa (Shellbark Hickory).

Knowing where the plant is growing might help in the absolute ID. The OP should share that.

Hi John. Nice to see you. The pictures did remind me of the ones you ID'ed for me when I was stumped over a pecan seedling.

LOL, I thought it looked familiar. We used to have Pignut Hickories on the property at our old house.
