Your picture is way too dark. . Perhaps other members can help, but I think you need a closeup of the leaves and trunk, and brighter shot; for real ID. Good luck

agree to all of the above. the shape of the "thing" may or may not be diagnostic because folks often trim and shear a plant so any "natural" shape that might be of help may be long gone. the plant appears evergreen IF the photo is recent but yes, close-ups are really needed to even try to come to some conclusion as to the i.d. of what you have.

I lightened your pic. Knowing gardening zone and time of year pic was taken would help a lot. Based on surrounding landscaping still being green I'll go with the pic was taken before a killing frost. (Also loosely basing location on your user ID ) Tips of leaves appear tinged red and also appears to have a multi-stemmed trunk, so my guess would be a variety of Burning Bush that has been regularly sheared with hedge trimmers to achieve the thick full look. Do the leaves turn red in the Fall?

It looks like a burning bush to me, too. How tall is it? How big around? Does it flower at all, or make berries? What kind of bark does it have?

I agree. It looks like a well-trimmed Euonymus - a/k/a Burning Bush. It's a shrub; not a tree. I have three of them in my yard. They're so pretty when they turn red in late fall and early winter.

Here are some good pictures of burning bush. The branches have a unusual feature. I have a "mini tree" grown from some variety of euonymus , I didn't keep tags so don't remember exactly what it said but euonymus was in name. It get a extremely bright orange, like a sugar maple brightness.

Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus) : UMN Extension

To bad they are considered invasive. Why would they be OK to sell in nurserys if that is so? Do they figure its too late since there are so many planted in landscapes?
