    Good, bad, or neutral?
    I've just started noticing this in my area in the last few years. I have only 1 of them on my acreage, but I see a lot of them within a mile or so.

    I agree that it looks like a viburnum. However, so many look alike that you could never nail it down just by those pics. That presents a problem - there are good viburnums and introduced ones that are invasive. If you are seeing them pop up everywhere, it could be a bad one. My advice is watch it as the season goes on and you can probably ID it. In the meantime here is a link that will be helpful.

    PS: Because of those funky curved leaves, my guess at this point is LInden Viburnum, which is a bad one. But I was wrong once..........;)
