Here I am, fighting the smilax and yaupon, getting my skin clawed to donate rich dark blood to these bloodthirsty giants and wham.

Chinese Privet Ligustrum lucidum. Another invasive for you, sadly!
Thats just a common theme down here Resin. Never saw the privet that big tho, sheesh.
This one can make a 20 metre tree ;-)
