I just bought this house and the previous owners planted a few "Trees" really close to the house. I'm afraid they will get way too big for where they're at. Trying to get some specs on them. It's a holly of some sort. It gets red berries in the winter. Thanks!

The leaves resemble holly, but whatever it is, I think it is already too close to the house.

You should tell us where this plant is growing (zone, city, state), as that will help eliminate a lot of guesses.

With that narrow leaf, that is probably a Foster Holly (Ilex x attenuata), which becomes a pretty large plant. You can keep shearing it a few times a year to minimize its impact on the house, but you should plan to remove/replace it.
