Hi I have this plant growing in my wooded area (several of them) I cannot identify it. I have tried and tried. Do you know what it is? Almost looks like a dandelion. No flowers yet and not a dandelion. Thanks in advance

Thank you for the question. From this picture, I can't tell what this plant is. I used many different plant ID sites with no luck. It does look like a variety of dandelion so you might consider watching and photographing it when it's in bloom and then re submitting them. Some perspective on the size of the plant and its root system along with the type of sap, if any, it leaks when the stem is broken would also be helpful.
