This plant sprung up from the stump of a tree cut down in April. It’s tallest stalk is about 12 feet high and the trunk is about two inches in diameter. It almost looks pre-historic to me. What the heck is it?

    That looks like Pawlonia. If so, it’s invasive and you don’t want it.

    Empress Tree (Paulownia tomentosa).
