I think this is a tree seedling of some sort. Any likely trees nearby?

Hey Porkpal, I truly believe that the mountain is trying to take my property back, I had it mowed for the first time on Monday and I really should have taken a photo of the back beforehand, nothing but maple sprouts with some moss, grass and wildflowers here and there. Same problem in the front, I'm so used to seeing them, I've forgotten that there are such things as other trees.
Thank You!

At least it's not another damn lily... Grumbling

Ailanthus & Wisteria come to mind.

Alianthus is invasive, Wisteria is not. What do I do, transplant or kill????? Shrug!

More pics may be needed for ID. Once ID'd, you'll be able to make a plan. Not all Wisteria are native. Native Wisteria can be more than a tended yard, or the gardener tending it, can handle.

Cripes, my hand looks like something out of a Seinfeld episode...

I hope these help, so the plant is about 8 1/2 inches high -- I take it that if I do transplant it in the back next to a tree that it can wrap itself around, I'm being painfully naive because it will propagate and turn my yard into Blanche Dubois' grave, am I right??

The leaves don't look smooth enough to me to be wisteria.

You could hope it was a walnut but I don't think it is. The test would be to crush a leaf and see what you think it smells like (and if your fingers turn brown). I think its Ailanthus - the extra little bump at the base of the leaf is a good indicator. The common name - Chinese Tree of Heaven - makes me suspect the Chinese have an evil sense of humor. Get rid of it quick and hope it isn't a sucker off a close by parent tree.

You can add this to your (growing) list of seedlings to get rid of by the millions every spring.

I think Daisy could be right about Ailanthus. Check the back of the leaflets for the two little glands either side at their bases as in these pics:

They looked like, you should excuse the expression, budding glands, but the pics you showed me were enough -- I had these in my weed tree line at the last house, and thought they were chestnuts...I yanked the sucker, got it all out but it has some trailing root, and I put it in the regular garbage, if it survives the truck, the compacting and the rats, good luck to it. And I poured boiling water where it was -- thank you all SO much for you help! Thank You!

The good thing about Ailanthus is that they root sideways for quite awhile before putting down a taproot. If you get them when they are less and 3 or 4 feet, they haven't gotten to taproot yet but could be growing new trees off the lateral roots (seems to be just 1 or 2).
