This pretty shrub/young tree is also commonly found at lower altitudes.
The stalk was soft velvety to touch with leaves growing in pairs. Please advise.

I think Ailanthus altissima.

I went out and found the same specimen in the lower town. On bruising a leaf and smelling it, I did not discern any foul/ unpleasant odour. Does this mean that it is very likely not Ailanthus altissima?

Then, let’s wait for the flowers to come.

Thank you. Will report back in June when the flowers are out.
