Chinaberry (Melia azederach). Considered an invasive exotic in the Southeast, it does not spread as aggressively in the West. It is a relative of Neem, and I have read that various parts are to different degrees insect-repellent. The fruits are toxic.

They DO coppice well (as you can see from the photo) so if you have the room to spare and a need for small poles, it may be worth keeping around.
