I think it might be gaultheria shallon - does it get chains of white/pink bell shaped flowers on it?

Otherwise it's a bit straggly which made me think it could be a sapling that's grown from a stray seed.

But, the photo doesn't give a sense of scale.

How long have you lived there? Just thinking that if it hasn't been a year yet it may flower after June which would identify it.

Gathering I think this might be a young beech tree. I drive past something which looks like it on the way to work.
