Hi all

I was wondering whether you could help me identify this tree, it is growing in my neighbours garden, I have dug up a seedling and would love to know what the tree is, the leaves are very soft

 

thanks

I have one of these and thought it was a fern of some sort.  If anyone has tips on pruning that would be great for me - I would like to keep it as the leaves go a lovely colour in Autumn.

It looks like a sumach tree.
