This has started popping up all over my garden. There is one across the road from us in a field and I am guessing it's pretty invasive (even growing in the bottom of our cattle grid!)

Looks like Fraxinus excelsior. Common name Ash tree.
Yes... they do grow fast.

Hi Margo,
I have scrolled back to 16th May 2010 Lonely bee posted by Paul5000 and have failed to find anything posted by you.
Going quietly nuts here.
Please tell me the date you posted question.
Or add a link to your thread, on this thread where I will find it.
Cheers
SS
