    They look like crabapple. Don’t know if they grow where you’re at but down south they are evil.

    Do you have any ornamental Bradford Pear trees near you? I believe they are an invasive that has wreaked havoc. They look like crabapple. I’ve seen pastures full of them. Birds disperse the seeds and they come up every where.

    Poplars sprouting off of the root systems of the surrounding trees. Definition of weed is a plant growing somewhere that you don't want it.

    Actually the weed definition has a time component as well.
