This tree has small leaves and clusters of tiny green berries (at least right now, might turn red later, who knows). Does anyone know? We're in Dallas, zone 7b/8a, depending on exactly where the metroplex you are.

I'm thinking a large genus of this (Elaeagnus ) red olive They are native from Wisconsin through Alabama and there are tropical genus of them also.
This is my guess.

juhur- you'll get better (or learn to pick the right 'battles' as I have ) Guessing helps practice what to look for!
