I found this at the edge of my woodline. It has the most unique flat segmented bark. Is it a young Tree or a weed?

It looks like Euonymus to me.
Winged stems typical of some sp.
Euonymus alatus maybe.

The leaves look alternate to me, most Euonymus are opposite. E. alatus would be opposite. Winged elm has the same wings but alternate leaves.

First my apologies to @Calif_sue - I honestly thought I put this question in plant ID forum. Please forgive me, I'm trying! Confused Sighing!

I think @Sooby may be right on. I've never heard of a winged elm! - and never seen one either obviously. I think it's fascinating and will read up on it. I took some clearer shots for you and I will also read up on this tree. I would like to dig it up and move it as it sits in a bad location right now.

At what point should I mark this as solved- after you confirm I'D?
Thank You!

You can mark it as solved when you're satisfied with the ID. You might want to wait for some more opinions. Rock elm can have corky wings but the leaves look wider and the twigs would be somewhat hairy according to my field guide, as opposed to hairless for winged elm.

Apologies.
I stand corrected.
New pics nice and clear.
Ulmus alata it is.

No need to apologize to me! A lot of members post ID question in the Ask a Question forum, it makes sense, you are asking a question. nodding
I move them here so they get good exposure to those that love to help ID plants plus you can then mark it as 'solved', which can't be done in the other forum

Even on the first pic, it is clear that the tree only has two wings. Euonymus have four, certain maples, six.
