I believe you have the invasive Carrotwood tree, Cupaniopsis anacardioides. I am including a link from UF/IFAS, Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants. There is an excellent short video that gives detail identifying tips on the Carrotwood tree. Even though I am certain of the ID of your tree, please watch the video to be sure your tree matches the one in the video. https://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/plant-directory/cupaniopsis-anacardioides/ I am also including the link to another publication by UF/IFAS on the control of the Cupaniopsis anacardioides. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ag111
Good luck and let us know if you have further questions. A
