Hi!
I found a few of these saplings/trees in the woods of south Sweden and thought they could be a couple of young Swedish whitebeam. I already tried getting help from a swedish forum but it was pretty inactive. Can anyone confirm/deny?

It's a populus of some type, not sure what kind you have in Sweden.

I would also go for some kind of aspen.  The leaves are too thin and delicate for Sorbus and too diamond shaped.
