Weed, Ivy, Tree or bush??

The tree behind this is an ash tree but I don't know what this new growth is? Could it be from the tree or some kind of ivy? We live in Eastern Canada.

It is coming from the base of the tree and in our front yard another tree has 3 or 4 of these things sprouting up. What can it be?
