Invasive tree/shrub?

Asked May 28, 2018, 7:58 PM EDT

These trees/shrubs appeared, in multitude, in my son’s yard ( and his neighbor’s), this year. Can you tell us what they are from these pictures?

The plants in the photo are aspen or cottonwood seedlings or root suckers. If they are difficult to uproot, they are suckers. The parent tree or trees are probably nearby.
