Help me identify this plant. Here's a pic of the leaves @ripjuju Also, I said it's a tree, but it may be a large shrub??

It reminds me of Ligustrum but the leaves are a bit to shiny @kerimanuel

@carolgs these leaves are really shiny. They are new leaves, maybe? A lot of the other leaves are dark and dull.
