My dad thought this was a black locust tree, but it doesn't look like the pictures on the internet. Any help would be appreciated!

This is tree of heaven (Ailanthus). Unfortunately, it is a non-native invasive plant, and not a desirable landscape plant. Here is info about it: https://www.nps.gov/plants/alien/fact/aial1.htm

You can also search it on our website's seach box.

Thank you- I won't feel guilty about removing it!
