  1. Don't think this is A. altissima as the leaves here are alternate (not opposite). The leaf venation doesn't seem right either. A. altissima has 3 major veins with a network of veins that branch off from the primary 3.

    I'd agree with some sort of aster.

''Eurybia divaricata'' , commonly known as the white wood aster, is an herbaceous plant native to eastern North America. It occurs in the eastern United States, primarily in the Appalachian Mountains, though it is also present in southeastern Canada, but only in about 25 populations in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. In the U.S. it is abundant and common, but in Canada it is considered threatened due to its restricted distribution. It can be found in dry open woods as well as along wood-edges.. more
