Found this today. Not many species have yellow roots; is not Mulberry. Leaves like an Ash but white dotted bark like a Cherry or young Birch; is none of those.

Was possibly planted last year amidst a batch of seedlings from Tennessee; large lots of seedlings do occasionally have a wrong seedling mixed in. Or a neighboring residence may already have a copy of this in the landscaping, who knows.

I still have the plant but didn’t press any leaves so could get better detail on the bark. Currently growing so no buds set yet.

Can’t place it as a MI native. Any guesses appreciated.

Just as a “guess,” black walnut. Unsure second guess is Tree of Heaven. I would plant the former and destroy the latter
