Apple tree seedling or weed?

This may sound like a dumb question, but I planted a bunch of apple seeds from a tree we love, but is dying. I tried growing one from a new branch cutting several times with no luck. I also got some seeds to germinate, but never grew. So finally I just stuck a bunch of seeds into a container with soil and left it outside. This was over a year ago, but now something is growing. I have taken photos -- is this an apple tree?

Thanks.

    I think not.

    Even if it were an apple seedling the resultant tree would not be the same as the parent. Apple cultivars can't be reproduced by seed.

    Try grafting.

    Looks like an oak, nice stout stem also.
