    Could it be Kochia scoparia (syn. Bassia scoparia)?

    That's a possibility.

    Yes!! Kochia scoparia, now Brassia scoparia. Considered an invasive weed in Eastern Washington and Oregon. Also used by Native Americans for animal forage and medicine. I also used it to create a strong, lightly tan handmade paper with it. Alas (for me), it is a rare occurrence to find Burningbush on the west side of the Cascade Mountains.
