Probably a mimosa. A notorious trash tree in the south. Pretty pink blooms in the spring with annoying large seed pods. Will sprout from nearly any part of the tree vegetatively as well as from the plentiful seeds.

Cut it down, dig out the roots, spray roundup on what sprouts, and pull the seedlings. If you don't do otherwise, mulch the area heavily to keep sprouting down to a minimum. This will make the sprout easier to pull.

Hope this helps.
