Hi Betsy,  As long as you have it growing by itself, you don't need to do
anything.  If it is attached to the old root system, the young tree will
utilize the roots of the old tree and grow with great vigor.  If it is a
seedling, it will grow just like any other tree seedling.  If you want to
find out whether it is a seedling or a sucker, I would very gently dig
around the base of the tree and see where the roots go.  In either case,
the Sweet Gum makes an excellent tree for providing shade and slug control
in the Hosta garden.

If you want to move it, that is another story.
