Ligustrum Question

15 years ago

I read the post about wild lilac, and in looking at the picture posted there, I think, I may have this shrub planted on my property. I say planted, because I have a row of about 10-12 of them, that are positioned on the property line of my driveway. My house is only 7 years old, and they must have been put in by the builder. I understand that people are ignorant, but really, would they have been planted this recently if they're so incredibly invasive??

I'm going to post a picture, and I'm hoping someone can tell me if they're not the invasive shrub. The reason, I don't think it is, is that I've never seen berries on these shrubs, and all the links I've read show them with berries.

Anyways, here is a picture of my shrub in question taken today. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Here is a link that might be useful: {{gwi:575211}}
