    That is a Dappled Willow tree.

    Search it in Google to check.

    Not rhubarb, but I know it looks similar right?

    It turns red and orange later in season and is actually a really nice perennial.

    Ok. Last pic. This plant popped up next to my burn pit this spring. I'm thinking either its a weed, or some incoming brush had a seed or something in it that turned into this.

    Any ideas?

    That, my friend, is the always popular POKEWEED!! Take the leaves and done make yous a salad!

    It'll keep coming back- when you try to pull it when it's that big, they usually crack at the bottom and pop more up. Cut them down, and as the new ones come up, douse them with roundup.

    Disclaimer: Leaves are toxic unless picked when young and cooked. Same goes for the berries. Don't make a fresh garden salad out of that guy!
