This plant is growing as a small tree or bush in a park in Greenville, SC. It has small ovate leaves that may be complex. It has a brownish pink stem with small hairs.
this, I’m afraid, is an invasive non-native shrub called privet, Ligustrum vulgare or a close relative. Many of these are crowding out our native species and should be eradicated.
