Unidentified Shrub/Weed


I have been tending to my fuschia hedge as it was getting a little overgrown and noticed that in with it in the bed there are some long green stems with either green/red leaves (similar to a nettle leaf) or with buds on them.  It has many branches.

Can anyone tell me what it is(pics below)

    It's an ash tree sapling and needs removing as soon as possible or it will be very difficult to get out as they have strong roots.  I have to remove dozens of them every year.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
