Can you I D this baby tree?

Some of you may get this right off...others may have a harder time with it.  I'll give you a hint...its not an oak.  Not much of a hint was it?  Banjo

It is a little difficult for me to see but I can tell that it is simple and opposite which rules out sugarberry or hackberry which is what the leaves look a bit like.  I do not think leaf base is just right or cordate enough to guess that it is a catalpa.  

I cannot see the veins but I am leaning towards flowering dogwood.

After zooming in 300% and seeing the new, what looks to be a compound leaf on the tree on the left, I think that Southside and Low48 are right.

Are you sure its a tree and not some sort of brushy plant.  Looks like some thing I see in the woods.

Not tree of heaven.  I get to see too many of those babies.  Looks familiar, but . . .

Yes its a tree.  My mickey mouse tree book says it grows to 75 to 100 foot.  So not a bush.  Also it is a native plant, not an import.  Banjo

That was a slight hint on post 12.  Thats coffee boxes they were sprouted in.  I watched a couple of things on youtube about how some have got them to come up before they arrived.  The method I used was to take a file and cut a light groove into the outer shell.  I will say that is the hardest wood product I have ever seen.  a file will just barely knotch it and you have to bear down at that.  A few looked to have already been swelled, so I just planted them.  Here is a picdture of the seeds with a dime as reference.



 
You can see where I put a slight knotch in each seed...both sides...just didn't go very deep so as not to mess with the innerds of the seed.



 
Here are the same seeds after soaking in water for about 30 hours or so.  Something that looks like shellac came off them, then I put them in this little incubator that I made out of a power aid bottle.

 

I finally put a paper towel on the bottom as well as the top and just kept them damp untill they started to send out a sprout.  As soon as I saw that I put them in some composted horse  manure.   I got 6 little trees so far and several more prospects.  I hope they continue to do well.  I have heard they develope a large tap root so I wonder when I should put them in the ground.  Dont want them to stay in the pot too long.  Thanks to those who posted and followed this.  Banjo

Glad to see everything worked out okay.  I'm finding ones that are coming up in the yard after last year's pod drop.  It will be interesting to see how these develop in a wooded situation.  They tend to be bushy as a yard tree.  
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
