Ok this one has been driving me crazy!!! Been trying to identify this one for weeks but no luck.
I thought it was a Staghorn Sumac at first but I notice in Sumacs the leaves tend to be left right left
directly across and these ones are left right and offset. This one grows EVERYWHERE here in PA
and it's really annoying. Would appreciate an ID because then I can look up the best way to take care of
it and also be sure it isn't anything to worry about. I was so worried at first that it was poison sumac but then realized it's all sawtoothed. Any help would be appreciated!!!

I just looked it up and definitely looks like american elm or Siberian, I am thinking it might be Siberian because everything I read about how invasive it is holds true here. Ugh. Thanks for your help!

I was thinking American Elm but couldn't really say. Didn't know where your location is. They sure can be weedy!! We get them all the time here.

Looks like the weedy, pesky, seed spreading Siberian Elm that we have here. When it drops its seeds it is just like a snow storm and they are all so willing to germinate. Thumbs down

Or maybe Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra)
