Ailanthus altissima is not supposed to have toothed leaf margins other than one or two lobes at the base of the leaflets, whereas these leaflets are serrated. Do we need to consider another ID?

Do you have any more pics showing other details? It would help to know if the leaf arrangement is alternate or opposite, and the number of leaflets, also if there is a terminal leaflet or not.

Took the treelet out, but I'll try to find the pics thereof later.

Thanks, that would be good. I only noticed because we were minutely examining pictures of Ailanthus for an ID in the Plant ID forum and one of its characteristics is a non-toothed leaflet.
