We recently cleaned up a heap of accumulating refuse that had started as a
makeshift tarp shed (dumpsters are worth the rental), and there was a small
tree amidst it all which has started growing again.

It's about five feet tall, and pictures of the leaves can be found here:

Any ideas what it might be?

I totally agree with Phillip... though a nice and quicly growing tree,
it has a tendensy to grow as fast as wildfires and it produces huge
amounts of seeds. Also, it smells really bad when in flower
