    This showed in my daughter's garden in Portland, Oregon and she is not sure if she should pull it.

    I would look at trees and shrubs in the neighbourhood to see if any have the same leaves.

    If doubt remains about its garden worthiness, perhaps put it in a pot until you know its name. It looks to me like something that could grow big quickly.

    So far it looks like there was a snowberry there before the cleared and mulched area was made, and it is sprouting from a surviving piece of root crown.

    It doesn't look like a weed, I agree it looks like a plant growing back after coppicing.
