I have two of these volunteers in the understory of a huge pecan tree. They are both very leggy and appear to be reaching for the light, but then I saw one in a manicured landscape at an office building in full sun and it's 20 ft tall and also scraggly. The bark and leaves make me think prunus, the trunk is maybe 4-6" but the multiple flower buds confuse me (easy to do, haha :) I'm afraid to let it go to full maturity if it's going to produce a million unwanted toxic seeds!
edit: But getting a berry identification book and verifying would be recommended before you eat them

Thanks guys! I'm still not 100% sure because none of the google pics or in this webpage show the reddish tinged leaves but maybe it's because they're spring fresh. I like that my chickens will enjoy the berries. I quit mowing in that area 3 yrs ago and it's part of my chicken run so I'll just leave these 2 trees alone this year and see what happens :)
