Unknown Shrub


Would anyone happen to know what this shrub is growing in my garden? I didn't plant it and suspect it could be a weed. It is now about 15' tall. Any advice would be appreciate.

    Possibly a rowan? Does it get any berries at the back end of the year?

    Thanks for the reply hogweed. No berries ever seen.

    It's an ash tree I think.  If they are damaged when young, they grow multiple trunks, hence looking like a shrub.  Ash self-seed like mad around here and it's hard work pulling them up if you don't catch them quick.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
