Can anyone help me identify what this is in the foreground, is it just an Ash that’s seeded?
Many thanks

Fast growing with a root that descends to the depths of the earth. My last garden had a mature ash about twenty yards to windward and I quickly learned not to ignore two leaf seedlings but pull them before they got any more root. Chop them off and they simply grow multiple stems from the stump, it's a digging job.
If you are wondering 'is it an ash?' the giveaway is the big grey black buds.

As already discussed on another forum!!!!!!

It is definitely NOT Fraxinus excelsior...common name ASH TREE.

Sorry but I do not believe that it is a seedling of Fraxinus excelsior...common name Ash tree.
Ash trees have compound leaves.
I attach pics to show you a single ash leaf with multiple leaflets.
It has a terminal leaflet at the tip. (While your shrub ends with a pair of leaves)
The leaflets are different sizes getting smaller as they get near the trunk.(Your shrub does not do this)

1st pic below shows a close up of your leaves.
