Growing all over my back yard
These appear to be tree seedlings. What type of trees are they coming up near?
We primarily have cottonwood trees. We have spent most of last season and working this season on cleaning out buckthorn and now these are appearing along root lines. We purchased property in Dec 2018 and don’t hav any idea of variety. Property was built in 1979 and used as a rent house. Very neglected yard.
They are definitely tree seedlings and can be eliminated by hand pulling. Continued mowing will overtime eliminate the as well. While they look like cottonwood their stems of cottonwood are typically reddish in color so I cannot be sure.
