    I'm not familiar with it so I have no clue what I'm looking for. The plant id app lists AO as a possibility when identifying this plant.

    Definitely not Autumn Olive. Looks like spicebush (Lindera benzoin), Scratch the stem and see if there's a "spicy" aroma.

    Good! I was hoping it was spicebush but I wanted to double check with the experts here. Thanks!

    I agree that it’s not autumn olive. New growth (suckers) are normally a lighter brown than the thicker more established ones.

    That looks more like it. That's not this years pic is it?

    It may very well be but not of concern in it's present deer food form.

    Still a concern unless the deer are using the "browse and squirt" method. :)

    AOC is a much bigger problem!
