HELP Please! Anyone know what this is?

I have looked but cannot see what this plant / tree is called. The main stem is brown and hairy, very smooth soft hair. Any ideas???  Thank You!

    There were three separate ones here when we moved in, right along the line of the main sewer pipe.  We werevery lucky and managed to get rid of them all, even the one which had split the pipe and was busy filling it with root. Another one of those plant at your peril things.

    Such a pity rhus is such a pain, as it is so lovely in autumn - our neighbour across the road has one, and I am very happy to admire it from afar!

    I think you are being harsh. I have a Rhus and it does sucker, but the suckers are easily removed and the flowers and autumn colours are superb.
