What it this plant

We have had this plant growing on the balcony for nearly two years. It is approx 0.75m tall and has leaves in groups of three. Originally we thought it was an apple tree but from investigation it does not appear to be.
Attached are some photots,  one of the leaves one of the top showing new growth and one of the stem/trunk to help identify it.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Really clear pics..thanks.
    Where in the world are you? USA maybe?
    It looks a very sturdy specimen.
    Puzzled...I wonder if it could be Staphylea trifoliata...the American bladdernut.?

    Hi, we are in South China so not sure how we got the bladdernut. Have to sggree looks very similar.

    In that case probably not Staphylea.
    You have many 1,000 of rare, unusual plants in China that in UK we do not know.
    Maybe safer to ask someone on a Chinese forum who will know your local plants
