    My guess would be Mulberry?

    Please watch and look at what you have. DO NOT TOUCH IT or burn it. This plant is highly toxic and can cause severe burns and or blindness. If you have any questions as to the ID of this plant, please call you local county extension office. If this is what you have, please share. http://youtu.be/KaV2jwNT0MQ

    I think this leaf is not the same as the giant hogweed. It does look more like the leaf of an immature mulberry....that is a tree that grows quickly and provides very thick shade. If it is a fruitless variety it can be a really nice plant to grow into a tree. If it is a fruited variety you will not want it where it can drop the fruit.....it's very messy (but makes pretty good wine!). If it's a volunteer and is a mulberry, good chance it's a fruited variety and dropped there by a bird.....volunteer plants are normal around here and get pulled up or transplanted to where they can grow, make shade (a scarce and valued thing around here) and not create a mess.

    Well thanks to all for the comments. This is def not the giant hogweed, does not look like it. Mulberry would be great; I can transplant it to a better place for the birds to enjoy it! But sure don't know where it came from... ok I went to look at a mulberry leaf and there are different shapes, some like this one I have. So do the leaves change shape or are there different kinds of mulberry?

    I'm glad it's not giant hogweed. Good luck in finding what kind of plant you have.

    Mulberry leaves vary a lot, especially in young, immature plants......they are usually "fingered" on young plants and not on mature ones so there are in between stages.

    It is definitely not a mulberry the leaves are too large. I looked up hogweed and I am sure it is not that either. Hops is more viney
