Without any other identifying features, it is hard to tell. I would pin it down to one of three things, though.
A walnut, sumac, or ash tree. Unfortunately, without any information on the tree, such as what country the tree is located (I'm not familiar with climate zone hd8, as we use a single number, single letter system here in the US Example: 5a) the smells of the leaves or bark, or any other information that you can give. The closest I can get you is the three that I have mentioned here.
Without any other identifying factors, it is very hard to say. This resembles several genus, and countless species within the genus.
I will give you my best guess based on the pictures and description.
I have pinned it down to a few Genus. Rhus, Sorbaria, and Sorbus. A sumac, false spirea, and quickbeam, respectively.
Getting rid of it will require you to dig it up, completely. Pouring boiling water on it a few times a day for two or three days will provide a quick death, as well. Other means will include herbicides, and chemicals, should boiling water fail. (It won't fail often)

Yours looks more like the common sumac than the poison sumac to me. The description of the tobacco sumac resembles your picture. The poison sumac has wider leaves than your photo. Here are the comparisons:
Sumac is great for large landscapes and native areas. However, most types spread via underground lateral roots (rhizomes) so they grow as a thick, dense clump of plants, not single specimens.
Howdy I was wondering if you could help me. I noticed the dried up berries are still hanging on to the sumac trees and I’ve never grown them before, so I figured I’d give it a try. I grabbed a few of the bundles of seeds and took them home and put them in a zip lock baggy like I do most my seeds, but I noticed when you bust the dried berries open that the seeds are flat and don’t look any good. But I was wondering if that’s how there supposed to look or not.
You should harvest seeds when they are dark brown and dry. Boil water, remove from heat and add seeds. Let them soak for 24 hours to improve germination rate. Give them a dormancy period in the refrigerator for about 30 days. Plant seeds outdoors when danger of frost has passed. Choose a sunny site with well draining soil. Plant them about 3/4 inch deep. Water well.
Sumacs are native to the U.S. and not too picky about care.
