    If a photo won’t upload reducing its size usually works.

    Some type of tree seedling ? Sycamore perhaps?

    Thanks. Was using my new phone to upload the image and it just wasn't having it. 🙄

    Not Sycamore. Perhaps Hazel, dig one up and see if there is a nut on the bottom.

    They look like suckers from an ornamental cherry tree.

    Cherry tree roots are often very near the surface of the soil.  If they get nicked by the mower or caught by a spade, they start to grow leaves.  If you follow those shoots down to ground level you'll probably find they are springing from a horizontal root; try to pull the shoots off the root, then they're less likely to grow again.   :)
