Unidentified Vine (IL)

Hello, I have an unidentified woody vine that is growing on my trees. It's leaves are dark green, alternate, odd-pinnately compound with 11 leaflets on each. The leaflets are ovate/elliptical, smooth edges with caudate apices, arcuate venation. It has tendrils that attach it to itself and nearby trees. At present (Aug 29th) it has green seed pods with 4-7 green seeds.

Do you have any idea what type of woody vine this might be? Is it invasive?

Thank You. I appreciate your help. I've been pouring over field guides but have not yet discovered what it is. Sincerely, Amy Joy Tofte

Greetings Amy Joe:

Would you be able to email me some quality digital pictures of this vine in question? Moreover, is the vine woody or herbaceous?
