Notes:

I have had a bunch of these pop up in my front yard. Grow relatively quickly, root is thin white small bulb, young leaves have a reddish tinge, plant has a faint “stink” smell. They grow to be quite large with thick stems if not pulled.

    Looks like tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima). A. altissima is known for its unpleasant odour. Check out the link below for more sources on this invasive tree and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/plants/treeheaven.shtml
