This bush or tree is in the corner of the side that I've been clearing out. I was going to leave this corner "wild", but after learning it was inhabited mostly by Bohemian Knotweeds, I pulled most of them out and disposed of them following the county's instructions. This plant is what's left (other than the established trees). I've looked through the county's list of noxious weeds, I don't see anything like this, so I'm assuming it's harmless and would like to leave it, but I'm curious as to what it is.

My first thought was maybe Indian plum (Oemleria cerasiformis) but I can't tell comparing it to the photos in our database. Here's a link with more pictures for comparison: https://emswcd.org/indian-plum/oemleria-cerasiformis-4/

I just realized today that these are two different plants growing about 10 feet apart, but they're canopies mingle. The first one I mentioned has no berries. I don't think it has any flowers, just a green-leafed bush, but I've never paid much attention to either one until recently. I'll keep an eye on them and post better pictures when I get time.
