I'd say that was Heliopsis helianthoides.

False sunflower seems to be any yellow daisy flower

Trees from seed

Pots are better than trays, some trees create a  longish root before you want to be pricking them out. That's best done as things get a bit warmer, otherwise they might rot.

My feeling is that exposure to all weather is part of the process. However, some trees will germinate whatever you do or don't do. This may be one of them

A lot of people fail with tree/shrub seeds because they do too much, or try and be kind to them.

The fridge is an alternative to standing them out for the winter. I think outside is better. Fridge temperature is above freezing point, outside is often lower than that. Variable temperature is what happens in nature. Plants evolve to survive the climate they're in

It's been very dry for September, have they had enough water?

 

What plant is this please?

Some look as though some are coming up to flower, that will help.

Do the leaves smell of anything?

Seeds don't naturally sink themselves 6 inches into soil, they land on the surface. Then they sit out in the weather. I cover hardy tree seeds in a small layer of compost, just enough to surround them, then a layer of grit, then I leave them outside to take what nature would give them. I don't have many failures

I'd start a new thread with this with the plant name in the thread title.

Different people look at different threads and you'll find more Acer experts like that.
