THIS TIME OF YEAR IN MY AREA (N.E. AR.) THERE ARE TREES THAT ARE COVERED IN RED BERRIES. THEY GROW WILD IN THE FENCE ROWS AND DITCHES, AND MAY BE CONSIDERED A SHRUB. I HAVE SEEN THEM IN PEOPLES YARDS, AND THEY DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF THEM. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE OR MORE IN MY YARD! THANKS, TERRI

This is one instance where a picture is worth a thousand words. I'm guessing it is a winterberry (Ilex verticillata) which is native to your region, but it's only a guess. If you can take a photo of the shrub and the berries, then post it on a public photo hosting website (such as Flickr or Shutterfly) and send us a link to the picture, we can access it and probably identify the plant for you. Or, cut a branch with the berries attached and take it to a well staffed nursery or cooperative extension office; folks there help identify the plant.
