Hello all,

I was hoping one of you could help me ID this volunteer tree (could be a shrub but I don't think so) that showed up at my place. It came up in an partially shaded bed that I'm not actively managing at the moment - just letting "weeds" improve it for me until I'm ready to start planting in it.

I'd say elm.  But there are hundreds of leaves out there with a serrated edge.  More time needed to make a positive ID.

Don't tend to see elm in my area but poplar would make sense. There are some down the street from me - not sure what type though. Thanks all - I will keep watching it and try transplanting it in the fall. It is currently growing near my house.

Looks like Rosaceae. Serviceberry is my guess.
 
You know it is dark times when the trees riot. I think this tiny ad is their leader:
