another pic of the tree or shrub in bloom. It has a sweet smell and the bees loves it. But it is invasive. I have to keep digging up the little seedlings.

That's a Privet of some sort (opposite simple leaves, fragrant terminal flowers), and you are right to call it invasive. Seedlings will occur interminably.

ViburnumValley I looked up Privet and the flowers are different. The flowers are in clusters. Maybe the picture was just not in full bloom. We keep it trimmed so we can mow around it and trim it like a tree. I do keep the seedlings out to. I have one in the front yard and I think I will have to cut it down because my field drains are close to it and the roots grows everywhere. I will get a closer picture of the cluster flower. I know I see this plant all over North Carolina when I am driving around growing wild. I really dont mind it too bad because we have almost two acres of land here and it didnt have anything at all on the lot. Getting there now though with the help of Dave's Gardeners.

I thought Privet too. Failing that, try Lagerstroemia indica http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/314526/

You can't mark things solved in this forum. Only a few forums like Plant ID have that option.
