The tree is 20 or 25 feet tall — too tall to be ChokeBerry? Its got the serrated leaves with the pointy ends, the white raised bumps on the younger branches too. Unfortunately I did not notice the flower type in the Spring (I know that would have helped a lot!). The tree has a a few young (green) berries, and the rest are a mix of partially ripe (red) and totally ripe (black) berries. Web sources seem to indicate berries ripen in the LATE summer, but maybe earlier in Georgia?

    This could be black cherry (prunus serotina) or Carolina laurelcherry (prunus Carolinensis) (sp?). The arrangement of the berries suggest the former, but closeups of the leaves would distinguish between the two, as would the bark of a reasonably large specimen.
