Hey guys, anyone know what this plant is? It's growing in my woodland under the canopy of white pine. It's the plant in the middle of the pic.

Prunus seedling?

Not sure, as I have black cherry on my property and the leaves aren't so long and narrow.

try prunus serotina.. the furniture cherry ... not the edible cherry ...

this looks a lot like the 50 million seedlings i have all over the yard from my serotina ... but w/o a scale its hard to be sure...

seed leaves are often different than leaves from a mature tree .. if for no other reason.. they are usually grow in too much shade.. under the huge momma tree ...

Thanks to all who replied.

That looks like it could be a mountain laurel seedling (kalmia latifolia), if the leaves are leathery. They like acid soil, which is what you have there in the pine needles.
