I need help identifying a volunteer plant so that I know whether it is something I should keep or get rid of. From what I have read so far, it may be a Cladrastis kentuckea; however, it is growing so quickly, I think it might be a weed. The plant appears to be a young tree, currently about 5 feet tall, about 3 feet at its widest point. Leaves are arranged alternately along a reddish stem and have spiny edges. Stems do not bleed when broken. It has had no blooms or fruit of any kind, perhaps due to its youth. It is growing in Atlanta, GA and is perhaps 2 years old. I am posting pictures and would be happy to answer questions that might help identify it. 1: current size, at 20120724; 2 Thank you for your help.
