    With the plant’s leaves are alternate and their shape, I’m still leaning toward Populus genus. Scrolling down the included link for images leaves of a species young cotton sapling with red veins & stems. Not having this specimen in person, I could be wrong. Please give us an update as this grows more mature, if this isn’t Populus. Best wishes!

    This has red stems on the leaves and red vains in the leaves. The leaves are almost a lime green. this plant is located just south of Atlanta, Ga

    Maybe a cottonwood species (Populus)? Possible the Lombardy poplar (Populus nigra)? Check out the included link and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
