    I wish I could other details i.e. the whole the plant, closeup of the main trunk, etc… without flowers to help with the ID, I’m wondering if this could be a type of privet (ligustrum), perhaps the California privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium? Check out the flowers images from the included link and see if yours look like this. Click on the pictures to enlarge. If this isn’t privet. Make new post with details mentioned above, also close up of leaf buds. Again I’m only speculating. Best wishes! https://www.forestryimages.org/browse/subthumb.cfm?sub=11561
