Hi Brad - welcome to the forum. My first impression is no. They are usually much fuller. It really is impossible to identify with out close up photos of the foliage. Sassafras foliage is unique. There is no one leaf shape. One tree will have a variety of different leaf shapes.
Sassafras grows wild around out fishing camp on Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Louisiana/Texas border.
I harvest the leaves to make Gumbo File. Dried and finely ground the leaves are used as a thickening and flavoring agent in Cajun Gumbo.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
