It was one of the plants I looked at... I don't think it's evergreen. My son sent me this pic trying to ID a shrub in his backyard woods. It is just leafing out.

That's a pesky Privet - Ligustrum sp.

That group are pretty much all invasive exotic pests plants in eastern North America, and perform extraordinarily well in Pennsylvania due to birds distributing the seeds far and wide. I'd advise him to exterminate it, and make room for Dogwood, Redbud, Viburnum, Spicebush, and other great native understory plants.

Thank you John.
Yes, it looks like Ligustrum obtusifolia...
Unfortunately, he's got too many invasives - amur and oakleaf honesuckle are rampant... and now this.
