What tree/shrub is this?



Can anyone identify this tree/shrub for me please? It has appeared on it's own over the last few months and is now about 3ft high. if it is a large tree i would like to remove it now before it gets too big and too close to the boundary wall. Thanks.

    Not sure what it is, it looks a bit like the sweet chestnut saplings we get at work from the chestnuts buried by the squirrels and jays, but I don't think the bark is right.

     Anyway, I'd bet my boots it's potentially a very large tree - hoik it out now!!!

    Pretty sure its beech. Hedge or tree like that growing anywhere near you? Like Dove said take it out!

    Thank dove and addict. I've searched on google and it does look like a beech tree. Not aware of anything nearby. Perhaps the wind or a bird dropped it there. I'll better get it out this weekend then. thanks for your advice.
