Welcome! to NGA

Good news: Its not poison ivy

Bad news: I have no idea what it is and, apparently, neither does anyone else. Smiling

They might be Crab Apple seedlings. (Just a guess.)

AAAK! Looks like Asian bittersweet to me.....is it a vine? Not an expert but if you pull this out and it has a bright orangey-yellow root....it IS : Celastrus orbiculatus.

This vine can cause a LOT of damage if it's in the wrong place...beware!

American Bittersweet? Is it viney or a tree?

I didn't refresh my page and so didn't see upat5 answer. In any case, looks like a bittersweet which grows into a very large and spreading vine. The oriental is suppose to be more common so upat5 is probably right.

It does resemble Oriental Bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus)
Lots of photos on this page for comparison: http://www.invasiveplantatlas....
