I am wondering if this might be a juvenile tulip poplar. It is growing right next to a tulip poplar in my backyard and does bear a resemblance, but also has some clear differences, at least from the adult form. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Looks like a tulip poplar seedling to me. I have noticed other tree seedlings seem to put out huge leaves @ 1st. The adult tree usually has leaves 1/2 this size.

    This is definitely a young Tulip Poplar tree, also known as Tuliptree and Yellow Poplar. I’m a student at Gwinnett Technical College.
