OK No1 Coming up... more to follow - Identify!

This superficially looks like Ailanthus altissima, has a similar growth habit/shape, but is very much smaller! The leaf stalk is noticeably hairy.

This was not just one stunted altissima specimen - there were many of these, growing to about 3 meters height.

Do your best!

i worked for 6 months in that particular location and its hard to overlook the big things you posted. but there are a lot of nice tiny little plants in the area (maybe not at the moment, the site was very dry and bare in Oct).
