Hi experts ;-)

So I allowed this thing to grew in my backyard, till got so huge that was taking all the sun from my other plants. Today I cut it and this is picture of it. Have no idea what that is, any one?
Thanks. Nell

It's not immediately familiar to me, may be to someone else...but you may have an answer sooner if you post it over in the Plant ID forum...lots of smart people

birds eat the berries and drop them everywhere , especially along fence lines , bushes and trees

Pokeweed (Phytolacca americana)

if you are trying to get rid of them , they can grow large tubers underground that will most likely need to be dug up ,
pulling the up or breaking them off at the soil is usually just a temporary fix , they most likely will keep growing back.
and if you dig them up , birds usually just plant more in other spots if not the same.
