    I'll guess Ailanthus altissima.

    Ernie...

    thank-You for trying to identify my tree..... I looked at the pictures of a Ailanthus Altissima and it seems that tree grows very large...This shub of mine only grows to about 15 ft. with almost bamboo looking main stems... The whole branch falls off after the first frost.... After that I am left with thse dried "bamboo" looking stems....Does that help you ?????

    Thanks Again...

    Makes sense, A. altissima is not hardy in Manitoba, so it is growing as a dieback perennial. The 'branch' is actually a compound leaf & will fall off come Fall.
