Suckers of some kind :D It looks like insects. Check underneath the leaves but the are probably long gone.

Aphids or scale or mealy bugs, or . . . In zone 6 they're probably gone. No permanent damage was done, and you're going to lose the leaves shortly anyway, so I wouldn't fret. As long as you have the tree in a grow box, this cosmetic damage to the leaves in inconsequential, anyway.

kid,

Thanks for posting this thread/asking your question. I have a similar situation going on with trident saplings in a grow box. Pretty sure my question got answered as well.
