It looks like a dry grown Laurus nobilis. Any aroma in the foliage.
Congrats on the new property.

Not sure what it is, but it isn't Laurus nobilis, that has distinctive thick berry stems, this has the berries on slender stems.

Kinda looks like Prunus caroliniana. Just a guess though.

I have to ask where that is approximately. I have property in Apple Valley and by Elizabeth Lake. The vegetation and landscape is beautiful. Congratulations! It brings back a lot of memories.

Yep, I have friends that live there. It is beautiful country. It's not flat like some deserts, it always has something different, to offer Dang, you're making me home sick. But congratulations to you.

Any more thoughts on ID? I still think Prunus caroliniana is a good candidate...

I agree that's very likely it. We lived in SoCal for many years (including the Palmdale area and Orange County) and there were a number of P. caroliniana growing there, mostly as trees though. It isn't native, but it's fairly plentiful in those areas.
