I have this weed/tree in my backyard. It grew about 10 feet in a very short period of time. The “trunk” is pretty thick. Is it a weed or is it a tree and what is it called? I’m not sure what to do with it Thank you!

    This appears to be a fig tree. If so, lucky you.

    You may want to move it. Looks awfully close to the house or a deck (can’t really tell). Fig trees grow very huge and are quite messy when they start producing.
