Default PLEASE help me identify this tree

I have these trees in my backyard that are basically more like WEEDS
than trees. They seem to grow anywhere, and they grow tall. The trunks
or stalks of these trees get fairly thick but they are extremely easy
to cut through. The leaves leave a strong, peculier oder on your hands
when touched.

I had a tree guy come to my house and he told me these were "Lanthis
trees". I looked all over the internet and found no mention of such

Please help me identify these trees. Thanks.

The Ailanthus altissima will just about take over any area where it is
allowed to grow. Quite a noxious invader in all parts of the US.

Roundup is effective against ailanthus. Just spray it on as many
leaves as possible. Killing it before removing it is better than
cutting the trunks and leaving live roots in the ground.

Just curious: why couldn't you just cut the tree to the trunk and dump
the roundup on the trunk? That'll kill the roots, right?
