Hi John and welcome to GoY. Hopefully someone will have the answer to your question but it is possible that none of us know. We are simply a bunch a keen amateur and professional gardeners. Is this 'tree' deciduous or coniferous?

If it is the rhus you should know it sends out runners and comes up in other places in the lawn.You can mow them off but its as well to know.But it grows higher than 5 feet.
