Kind of looks like wisteria to me, been finding quite a bit of it all over. I thought at first it was in the bulk mulch I bought this year but this one showed up in one of my pots.

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Leaves look wrong for my choices but check out:

Elderberry (there are several types)

Millettia reticulata = Evergreen Wisteria (it is neither evergreen nor is it a wisteria) but your leaf does not look like my plant.

Sumac - leaves don't look quite right for that either, but there are many types of Sumac. (Take precautions as some may give you a rash).

I'm just going to toss out an idea here, because I can't really see the leaf petioles in the image. Did you try Ash, Ronnie? They look very similar, but the leaflets do have short petioles.

I think Stone may be right with ailanthus altissima. Thank You!

Oh gosh, I hope that's not what you have. That plant can send out chemicals that keep many native plants from growing.

A quick walk around your neighborhood should let you see if the seeds came from a neighboring property.

You could inform the people who supplied the mulch. If they were not aware of it, they should have a chance to correct/change where they obtain their material. If they already know, then they deserve to know that you will 'out' them if they don't make a change.

Good idea Greene, I will add though a few of the neighbors that would have it wouldn't care whether or not it was a problem Shrug!
The place I got the mulch wouldn't care either unfortunately.
I know I won't go back next year no matter how much of a bargain it is Thumbs down
