What is the name of this Plant Growing in my Garden

Hi,  I have no idea what the name of this plant is growing in our garden and there are a number of shoots growing, Can someone identify it for me please.  We moved into our bungalow approx six months ago and our builder cleared our garden using a mini digger. Now we have patches of new shoots growing all over the garden, if possible i would like to save them so that when we start working in our garden i can re-plant them.

    Hi, sorry for not attaching  my pictures to my question.  ( i have been having some problems with my computer, maybe i should spend some time reading up on computers for dummies). here are some pictures of the plants which will hopefully  help identify the plant.

    Nor me, and photinias have smooth leaves.

    I suspect it's a lurking horror if it's coming back in land that has been cleared by a digger.  The best thing to do would be to dig up some of the best specimens and put them in pots to quarantine and grow them on, just in case they turn out to be goodies.

    Then you can go ahead and clear the rest of the garden and prepare the soil for planting real treasures, by which time, this one will have grown and be easier to identify and can be planted out or composted accordingly.

    looks like a tree/shrub that's beee cut down and is regrowing with multiple stems

    looks like cherry suckers to me.

    I got them often. A bird passes a cherry stone in a secluded part of the garden and before you know it there's a spindely 6ft cherry tree. Cut the stem from the base, but the roots will still throw up suckers here and there.

    If you keep them, there's only a possibility that you'll get cherries - i've tried leaving them to grow, but never got any fruit

    Good luck
