It looks a lot like a little tree that we have been trying to ID in another thread. Whatever it is, you don't want it growing up through and overwhelming your orange tree. Pull it out! If it doesn't pull, cut it close to the ground and coat it with full strength Roundup or Brushkiller (use a little paintbrush - you do not want ANY of that touching the ground or your orange tree).

I have the same problem here in Michigan with unwanted weed trees popping up. For me it is usually a honeysuckle. I am interested to find out what your unwanted guest is.

That is an Ash (Fraxinus sp.) seedling. Note the pinnate compound foliage with opposite arrangement along the stems/branches.

Your third picture shows one leaflet from the pinnate compound leaves. The leaflets attach to the midrib (known as the rachis) of the leaf. The entire compound leaf is attached to the woody stem/branch.
