Help with Tree/Berry ID's

Came across some trees/berries that I'm having trouble identifying. Any ideas??

The bottom pic looks like it might be witchhazel.

I have a few ideas of what your top pic is, but still doubting myself.

Going out on a limb here. Trees and shrubs were never my fortay. Autumn olive for the top pic.

Witch Hazel... I never would have thought of that. Thank you. I do believe that is it! As for the berries, I just cannot figure it out. I keep thinking I know what it is and then doubt myself as well. Here is another shot of them:

Re: Help with Tree/Berry ID's

Yeah, I felt pretty good about the witchhazel. The autumn olive I don't see much down here. I typically see it when I'm up at camp and that's mostly in winter. I'm still sticking with autumn olive. Is it more of a bush?

I'd say the trees/bushes were about 12x12... These were very smooth berries though and from what I'm seeing online, Autumn Olive berries have a little bit of a scaly texture to them? Maybe only when mature though?

Looks like it could be one of the bush honeysuckles.

Autumn Olive does not have as bright a red berry and also has white speckling on the leaves and berries.

Re: Help with Tree/Berry ID's

Thank you RS. I was considering that possibility as well. The berries were definitely bright and smooth. Autumn olive berries look different to me.

It's honey suckle, no doubt. It's considered invasive. The other is witch hazel, as you've already discovered.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
