It almost looks like a beauty berry, they have berries that color in the fall here in Oregon and quite pretty.My neighbor just planted two of these bushes..
Hope that helps.

"Almost" being the operative word! Somehow, birds "gifted" me with a beauty berry and since I like to see what's growing before pulling to make sure it's un/wanted, I now have a good sized bush. And there are tiny flowers that ultimately turn into beautiful berries in late fall...
If you look at the leaves, you'll see the difference - beauty berry does not have glossy leaves; also, the berries are much smaller.



Having said all that, I don't know what it is You call it a "tree" - how tall is it?

Completely different leaves than the pic. posted...so no, not Beauty Berry. Most def. a tree...all most have been planted around the same time, because they are all about 10 ft tall at the moment.

Shelby,
I would guess that they are rhododendrums.
They should flower from the "berries".
I think they are only because of the leaves.
Check online for pics under Rhododendrums.
They can get very big with age. Like trees.

It looks like rhododendron to me too. But it also looks like they have already passed the flowering stage. If those are berries and not buds you probably won't see any flowers again until next season.
