It looks like something in the carrot family... HOGWEED popped into my head, but I've no idea if that's correct. :roll: :oops:

Hogweed is what comes to mind to me, too. Be careful and wear long rubber gloves when you remove it - the sap is really caustic.

thanks for your replies - i figured it's some kind of weed, though I'm not certain its hogweed. its currently ~6 feet tall and has not flowered.

My immediate thought was some type of sambucus (elderberry). I have a deep bronze one in my yard whose name I'm forgetting right now. The foliage is almost identical, but a different color. I think the foliage looks too finely cut for the hogweed that I've seen. Just thought this might jog someone's memory.
