Plant ID Please :)

Hello,
About 3 years ago a strange fast growing plant popped up in my garden. I thought it was a weed and have chopped it down every year. I've never seen any flowers on it. Someone once told me that it could be wisteria, but I highly doubt it as it grows so fast. It's deciduous and grows at a rapid speed, both upwards and outwards. Can anyone please identify it? Is it a weed?
Many thanks,
Sylvie It grows next to this shrub (what I think is Spirea Japonica shrub) and dwarfs it within a few weeks.

    An ash tree, oh goodness. Not sure how it's managed to appear here. Do you recommend removing it because it would grow too large? 

    I already have a greengage tree next to it and a variegated maple tree (which was left to turn fully green by previous owners.)

    Unless you have room for a very large tree, I'd remove it now, whilst it relatively easy to do so. 
    They seed everywhere so the seed may have blown in or dropped by a bird.

    Oh I understand, thank you so much!
