Notes:

Not sure what kind of tree this is but it has been pruuned before and I was curious if we should continue this practice or let it grow back out

    LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE PRUNED IT SIMILAR TO A CRAPE MYRTLE BUT THE BARK DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ONE.
    HAVE U LIVED THERE LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW IF IT FLOWERS OR PRODUCES FRUIT?

    The picture is kinda dark so it is a little hard to be sure what it is. Look at the ends of the branches. Are there small pea size pods present? If so, perhaps it is a crape myrtle and, if so, check this out http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/crapemyrtle-pruned-how-did-he-do/
    If this is a total strikeout, I need a brighter picture!

    I agree with the other posters that it’s a little hard to tell, but I’m thinking you have a Vitex Tree. It has blueish spikey flowers in the summer, at about the same time as a Crepemyrtle. Like the crepes, it does NOT need pruning to bloom because it blooms on new wood. Let it grow! And judging by the other landscape plants in the photo, it looks like someone got a little ‘happy’ with the shears. I hope it was the previous owner. ;)
