This plant was identified for me in the woods yesterday. I KNOW he said honetsuckle, but I forgot the rest of the name. He said it has pink flowers.

I agree with Kent. This is a seriously invasive plant in western PA with no redeeming value and very common. Some people like the attractive red berries but even birds will not eat them.

I did notice the berries were plentiful and wondered about the birds!
Don't worry, I'm not propagating or spreading it!
