I thought it might be choke cherry, but leaves look different from those in my tree book..Can you identify for me? Thanks,

We think this looks like a type of Elaeagnus either Autumn or Russian olive. Both are invasive shrubs. Here is our website and photos https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/autumn-olive
