What are these plants. When our renter moved out, she apparently didnt know how to weed-eat. But we went to clean the place up and found these growing up next to the house. a couple of them were about 6 feet tall. They have a woody base on them like a tree or shrub but there are no trees or shrubs around the neighborhood that look like them. They were growing by the central air unit. When I got to looking around the neighbor had one growing next to her central air unit too. She said she was having a hard time getting it to go away. She had cut it at least once and it grew back. I dont want them up next to the house reguardless of what they are but was just curious as to what it is. Thank you.

That will have to be the project for this week, digging them out. There were seven in total. Too bad we couldn't have transplanted them somewhere else. Thank you again for your help.
