This plant began growing in a pot. We did not plant it. Now it looks like a tree and we want to plant it in the ground but don't want to plant something we can't identify in case it is not good for the environment like an invasive. We have not seen any berries or flowers
Early morning walk with the dog, before sunrise, and we heard the chickens in alarm. My husband walked down the driveway to the caged chickens and flushed the bobcat from the area. It went over the property back fence. My husband noticed a dead chicken still in the chicken pen, but with 1 wing pulled under the fence. The neighbors were not home. The rest of the morning, the chickens keep crying in alarm. Don't know how many birds the cat has taken in total.
My husband flushed the Bobcat as he was mowing the side yard. Our property backs up to the creek. This was the direction the cat went to. It had a radio tag collar on it. After he finished mowing the yard, I decided to let our neighbor to the south know, as the cat was on their driveway and they have small dogs and grandchildren. As I walked over their driveway, the Bobcat flushed from under a large bush at the corner of their house with a dead chicken in it's mouth. Another neighbor 2 houses to the east along Marlene Dr keeps chickens. The cat went back to the creek area with the kill.

Small sapling about 4 ft high. Had to bring back small clipping since no camera at time. Not sure if a silver maple. Did not think silver maples occurred in this area.
