I have a bare tree next to my camelia bush my daughter told me to dig it out goodness knows what it is or how it got there what do you all think it is

I have self-seeded hazels and Norway maples popping up in my garden. You need to post a picture so people can look at the leaves or some other identifying feature.

I have the same Flo, plus field maple, ash, yew, sycamore and birch. There'd soon be a forest if I didn't keep weeding them out.

Lots of tree seeds blowing in the wind - we have ash trees in the back garden and ash seedlings in the front garden.  We have chesnut and oak seedlings appear where the jays and squirrels bury their stash.  And then there's bird droppings .......................

Hi Joyce. Birds drop seeds. Acer family and ash float on the wind with their little wings. Birch seeds are very light and move on the wind.

Thank you all for the replies what shall i do dig it out  ??

Depends whether you want it or not Joyce. I'd get a definite ID first. It's not all weed trees that germinate in the border. Could be anything from around your area. And quite a wide area at that
