This is Oriental bittersweet, a terribly invasive and destructive vine. It is an Asian introduction that has invaded thousands of acres of parks and natural areas: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/problems/oriental-bittersweet
It should never be planted or allowed to grow. Kill it a soon as possible.
