What is This Plant?

Can you help me identify this shrub? It grew in the corner of our large backyard, but I suspect our new plants are due to bird "participation". It has very brittle branches and when they are young and cut ooze an orangey substance, as do the leaves when cut from branches.

It grows at a fantastic rate. The leaves can grow to about 20 inches long. I would like to ID it to find out whether or not I should let the new growths burgeon.

Hardiness Zone: 10b
