    baby tree pics: Red Maple, Black Walnut, Red Oak

    Hi,

    First, this forum is great. We are absolute beginners, and bought two thick Michael Dirr books but it is not easy to use them to identify trees, especially baby ones.
    We plan on transplanting these but just want to make sure it's not a mistake.


    Pic #1: (unknown) next to the black walnut:






    In the pic below--we have these little guys coming up everywhere. If they are "good trees", I'd like to transplant a couple dozen before mowing. What are these please?



    Pic #2: (unknown)







    Thanks a bunch!

    #1 is a Red Maple (Acer rubrum)

    #2 is type of Red Oak seedling. Don't know the type of red oak from those leaves. White Oaks have rounded lobes and Red oaks have sharp pointed lobes. Oak seedlings many times Look totally different from the parent Oak leaves. To identify for sure it needs to be older, or maybe find the oak where it came from.

    Wow, that Black Walnut looks a lot like poison ivy. I guess the difference is the compound leaves.

    Don't forget PI is leaves of 3, not 5 or more. And the leaves are alternate.

    oh, transplanting poison ivy would have made my day--I'm highly allergic and it's all along my fence / woodline. Can't find recommendations for how to get rid of it without hurting the trees here yet.

    BTW I changed the topic title, since I spent a lot of time browsing here before posting, it may help someone else.

    If you have any big vines of it, you can at least cut the vine at the ground to kill it. The smaller ones????? I just put gloves on and grab fist fulls of it and cart it off to be burnt. Then in a few months it comes right back.

    I'm going to try pilling mulch up to keep it from coming back so soon.

    Get a goat. They love poison ivy! When I had goats, I had no poison ivy at all where they grazed. But they will browse little trees, too.
