Plant ID forum: Backyard Tree/Bush Growth

I purchased a house that has this growth in the backyard in the fence. It has apparently been here for over 40 years and has become one with the fence. I have tried to cut at it with a chainsaw and the stump-area wood is as hard as a rock. An axe just bounces off it. I was wondering if anyone had an idea what it was.

We would need a more detailed picture to identify it, can you take any closer ones of the leaves and stems? It would also help to know roughly where the plant is located because it makes a difference to the possibilities. Trying to make it out it looks like the leaves may be pinnately compound, which means multiple leaflets. So could it be trumpet vine, Campsis radicans? Does it look anything like this? Or is it definitely a tree rather than a vine?

Where is this plant located?
