You need to cut that back whatever it is. The roots can't support all that top growth.

Can you nip out and give it a squeeze and see if the leaves/branches have a smell. I wonder if it might be one of the black leaved elders.

Which are your favourite Campanula

C. rotundifolia is my favourite

C. persicifolia goes OK and a tallish one that comes in white and mauve, I've never worked out which one it is, a species I should think. C. trachelium is another reliable one, I like reliable

Some of the others you mention Kathy have been invasive in the root and pathetically poor in the flower for me.

I've sown C thyrsoides recently and await action.

I hope so Dove, they were never plentiful here, not like in my previous garden, but I haven't seen any evidence for years now.

Indeed LeadFarmer

There are field maples and pines (and other assorted trees) as tall as the house but we've only been here 23 years. Trees aren't so slow.

Now I feel guilty for sucking them up with a ride on mower

But it does break them down a bit to start the composting process
