Notes:

Photos aren’t the best, but this came up in my flower bed. Stalk is kind of tree like, but not really. This spring it had tiny light pink fragrant flowers, then a couple tiny berries that started green and turned red. Shortly after turning colors they disappeared. Not sure if they fell off or birds got them.
