How did my shrub have a baby?

#1
There's a only, very high maple shrub infront of my home. A very extensive period ago it ''gave birth'' to a child maple shrub (which is now about 3 legs tall), about 5 metres away from it.

How did that happen?

I suppose that's what plants naturally do right?
Pollen and seeds I believe!

Most plants grow from the roots of the main plant and they make child plants around this plant, just like banana plant. These type of plants doesn't require seeds and they all make for future use.

I suppose that is something I should have known.

Is this also how Aspen trees work?
