    It looks a bit like a Hazel tree.

    I hate to say it might be Fallopia japonica..the dreaded Japanese knotweed.
    But need very clear pics to be 100% positive...see my images of a leaf

    If it is...
    DO NOT PANIC!
    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DIG IT UP.
    DO NOT PUT IN COUNCIL COMPOST.
    Spray with "Round up" and wait...just be patient.
    Do not use a stronger solution than recommended.
    Keep respraying if it reappears.
    You will get rid of it.FALLOPIA  JAPONICA  JAPANESE  KNOTWEED 16-Aug-12 10-33-08 AM.JPGFALLOPIA  JAPONICA  JAPANESE  KNOTWEED 16-Aug-12 10-33-16 AM.JPG

          I'm not sure it is Japanese Knotweed as the pictures show serrated leaves. Can we have a clearer photo closeup of the leaves please @Mc79 ?

            Agree the photo is not quite clear enough. Having dealt with the dreaded Japanese Knotweed successfully, requiring me to be up close and personal with the thug in a previous property, the leaves in the photo do not look quite round enough for the dreaded weed. The advice given by Silver Surfer if it is JK is very sound. The trick is to keep at it with glyphosate but let it grow enough so that there is sufficient foliage for the weedkiller to attach to. I would add a little washing up liquid to the weedkiller but have a feeling this could be deemed illegal. I won’t tell:).

              Doesn't look like knot weed to me.
              I think it's some kind of tree suckers.

                Kind of reminds me of the suckers you get from plum trees.
                Any prunus type trees within 30ft or so.

                  No, only thing nearby are sycamores. I have a yew tree on the other side about 20ft away. There are none of these growing anywhere near the yew tree.

                    Maybe a dead tree /tree that has been cut down.

                      Any nearby stone fruit trees, either existing or felled, that were on plum rootstock?
