This plant maybe a species of Ficus. When cut it "bleeds" a milky substance like a latex.
Please somebody ID it for me. Thanks

It could be Ficus benjamina. Can we see the whole thing?

The exfoliating bark reminds me of Bursera except I don't think it bleeds milky sap. The images are rather blurry so hard to tell.

Yes, take a look through PF. I just don't think it has milky sap. I wonder if it's an euphorbia. Clear pics would definitely help.

It looks like Cruel Plant to me, Araujia sericifera.
Edited to add, the milky sap is purported to be an irritant. I have it growing indoors and have touched the milky substance when pruning it with no ill effect.
