I was taking into account the juvenile state of the leaves. How they are a fresh green texture, and of course the uneven base, where the leaf stalk joins the leaf. Also as you comment, the vast amount of germinating seeds. It will be interesting to see the development.
Unfortunately I don't know what shrub we removed but we do have lots of birch trees around! We're letting these little mystery plants grow and will keep you posted as to their development!
Unfortunately they're under 2ft of snow at the moment so I can't say right now but will be eagerly awaiting seeing them in the spring!Devon, I'm curious if these tree seedlings have developed farther along.
After considering a variety of Birch (Betula) and Alder (Alnus), I think the seedlings might be the European Downy Birch (Betula pubescens), which is grown horticulturally, and is also listed as introduced in British Columbia.
The leaf tooth pattern can be variable, especially on cultivated forms, but I'm not certain.
