Hello everyone. I have an overgrown evergreen shrub that I’m trying to ID. I obviously want to know what it is before I try to cut it back too much. I’m in Southern New Jersey. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum @jhealsnj . I don`t think it is a laurel. That leaf reminds me of Osmanthus 'fragrans' - one I used to propagate when I worked at the nursery.

Welcome to the forum @jhealsnj :)

Not a Bay Laurel. I'd be cautious when identifying a potentially poisonous shrub as an edible.

My mistake Bay Laurel has wider leaves, and thank you zigs for pointing that out, very important. Here's a photo of a Bay Laurel, very close resemblance but different.
