Wondering what it is?

Wondering what it is?


The first picture is a tree that was cut right down to stumps when I moved into the house almost three years ago, I have no problem with keeping it, altho it does grow right under my telephone wire.
Could anyone tell me what kind of tree it is and what are these shoots at it's base (second picture) ?
Cheers in advance for any help!
