Notes:

It dried a bit in transit, but leaves are about 2″, pointed, and veins are defined and closely matched. The sweet fragrance of this tree stopped me in my tracks in the early spring. Now it’s covered with pale pink-ish berries. Not sure if it’s a tree or bush but it’s wrapped up in a fence and I’d love to give it more focus. What is it?

    No, this is not an eleagnus that I’ve seen. The berries don’t have the speckles on them and they have a very thin skin. The berries are also the size of a pencil eraser, whereas the eleagnus berries I’ve seen a about twice that size.

    Got the pics… Almost certainly one of the many eleagnus species plaguing the state. Check this blog post: http://rurification.blogspot.com/2011/09/eleagnus-umbellata-autumn-olive.html

    Did it have small white flowers in spring? If so, my guess is Bradford Pear. I know B.P. isn’t supposed to have fruit, but they all seem to have them now — can be very messy.

    Possible eleagnus, Or crataegus. Really need pics of the tree, and close ups of the leaves… Wilted leaves are very difficult to identify.
