    I have hundreds of these tiny seedlings from my birch tree, they grow everywhere even in between paving slabs. I do try to be vigilant when I spot them but sometimes when the weather is bad, they end up growing huge !!!!

    I’ve got the same issue. They pop up everywhere! I hunt for them daily!

    Agree with all. Have had to be so careful as they start growing all over the place.
    It really is important that if you have an ash tree nearby you continue to look for seedlings in places that you wouldn't expect them to grow. THEY DO

    Last year I pulled out 300 babies, because the wind was in the wrong direction.
    This year was very windy, about 20 so far, thank God!
