Plant ID, please

Asked May 17, 2015, 8:28 AM EDT

Is it possible to ID this plant? It's a bush or a young tree and we'd like to know what it is.
I tried to make a close up photo of the leaves, please see attached. Let me know if you need more pictures.
Thank you.

Baltimore County Maryland trees and shrubs weeds mulberry

This looks like a wild mulberry coming up. Mulberries are trees which bear fruit that birds like to eat, then they deposit the seeds around the landscape.
They are considered invasive. Young seedlings can be pulled, but older ones (that may have been cut previously but returned) will probably need to be trimmed and then carefully 'paint' the cut surface with a product containing glyphosate, according to label instructions.
