Trying to identify the smaller seedling on the center/left of the shot with the lighter green leaves. Any ideas?

It's an ash tree. I can't tell you what kind exactly, could be any of the three common types, white, green, or black.

RE: Tree Seedling ID?

research EAB in your area ...

what fascinates me on these.. is that every group of what looks like 7 leaves.. is a SINGLE compound leaf ... cool eh ...

if EAB is prevalent in your area.. dont bother with it ...

@ Ken

if you find one SINGLE compound leaf impressive, check out a DOUBLE (bipinnately) compound leaf! Kentucky Coffee tree & Devil's Walking stick are two good examples. Honeylocust & Albizia have them too, but with really small leaflets.
