Can Anyone Help Me Identify This Weed/Tree/Plant Popping Up?

I have an invasion of these of late...

I had just cut one down near my fenceline, and one in a garden bed....
and within 7-14 days they started popping up all over. (with a proximity of around 20-30 feet from the ones that were cut down.)

(and I have 2 other pictures if you need more of them...one of the yard & frequency of them popping up...and 1 picture of one pulled out showing the root.)

Does it have a milky sap when you break off a leaf, like dandelions?

Skybird, if you're hinting at milkweed, that was my first thought when I saw the picture as well.

It definitely has milky sap when it breaks on the stem...not sure about the leaves.
(it's like white blood...except sticky...I remember getting into lots of that as a kid...but can't remember which plant(s) it came from...milkweed I guess?)
:)

If it is milkweed...any ideas on how I can better control it?
