Small tree 9-10′ tall with very firm to hard pinkish red berries, in hardwood forest hillside. I looked around but did not find any others like this. Right next to this tree is the largest “hearts a burstin” shrub/tree I have ever seen. I thought they were just a very small shrub.

    You’re welcome fleurgirl4! Appreciate for the confirmed ID and I’m so delighted to know about the wonderful experiences of living in a 25 acres wood. How amazing that is to have your own private paradise! It’s so lovely of you to share about the joy of discovering all flora in your own ‘back yard’, thank you!

    Laura 735 thank you!!!!
    Yes this looks exactly like our tree!
    We have about 25 wooded acres we built on in 2007. We have seen and are still finding so many wild flowers, shrubs and small trees we did not even know existed but we love them all.

    Maybe a species of buckthorn (Frangula)? Possible the Carolina buckthorn (F. caroliniana) Copy and paste the included link below and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge. If you are uncertain, when it blooms in spring, please resubmit with photo of flowers. Best wishes!
    On the side note, according to sources the “hearts a burstin” aka American Wahoo species (Euonymus atropurpureus) can grow from 12 – 25 ft.
