Super fast growing, the bark is pretty smooth, and these things grow very fast.  They pop up all over my property, many times right next to a building.  I can take more pictures if it helps.

Sure it isn't poison ivy? three leaves..strongly toothed.. fast growing in disturbed areas. Not sure, leaves can be highly variable. More pics always help. Smooth bark though?..

That is Box Elder (Acer negundo).

When doing a description of a plant you might want to say where you are, take pictures of the bark, more than one of te leaves, and one of the branching structure, an overview- sometimes overall plant shape and height help, and maybe one of the underside of the leaves. Acer negundo is a widespread native tree often found in riparian areas further west.

If you see samaras, the helicopters then it's a box elder (ashleaf maple) Acer negundo L.  I was wondering if there is anyway you can show me a picture of the bud.

If you like them should be easy to transplant.

Cheers
