    Spurge laurel
    European mountain ash
    Filbert
    Red elderberry

    All common garden volunteers in this region. The first two are pestiferous, appearing in numbers both in garden and on undeveloped land. The last does so also, of course, because it is native here.

    Thank you so much for the info. Interesting about the filbert... I guess a squirrel must have planted it, along with all the peanuts they seem to be growing for me.

    Since leaves still unfolding and all we have to go on is this picture, not so sure it can be told if it is Corylus avellana or C. maxima with absolute certainty. Shape of leaves at this stage could certainly suggest C. avellana.

    Pacific red elder differentiated as Sambucus racemosa ssp. pubens.

    >Shape of leaves at this stage could certainly suggest C. avellana<

    Jacobson, NORTH AMERICAN LANDSCAPE TREES (1996, Ten Speed Press) says (of C. maxima):

    "Its leaf is the same shape [as C. avellana] but thicker, 2"-6" long. Its hybrids with C. Avellana are the CULTIVATED FILBERTS used for nut production."
