    looks like a nice little tree for a bonsai.
    I have a small terrarium on my desk with a "yard harvested" Douglas Fir.

    It's a maple seedling. I have to pull tons of these out of my bogs every year.

    I dont think its maple, they look different imho.
    im 90% sure its a downy, silver birch or a natural hybrid of those 2.
    10% chance its an alder.

    I also say "maple"
    the instant I saw the photo, I thought "maple" with no hesitation.
    I will say...97.3% sure!

    maple seedlings often have leaves that look different from the "mature" leaves.
    so its not surprising that one leaf doesnt look like a maple right now..(but actually, it does.)

    based on the red trunk, and the leaf shape, its probably a "Red maple"
    Acer rubrum
    (which is not the maple that has solid red leaves, that is a "Canadian Red maple" or a "Red Norway Maple"..the regular "Red maple" has red stems, and green leaves)

    let it put out a few more more leaves, and post a photo again in a few weeks..
    im willing to bet it will look much more "maple-ish" very soon!

    i hope you're wrong, or else you just made me look stupid :P
    It does look a lot like the birches/alders i get all the time from spag and not much like acer pseudoplatanus and campestre. (those are the only seedlings we got here)
