Plant Identification Help

Bob44Bob44 Posts: 3


My parents have put me in charge of taking care of their yard and helping them with cataloging what they have and when to trim it etc.  However, I can't seem to identify one of the plants.  It has longer almost magnolia looking leaves, but has some green berry/acorn looking things on it.  It currently is about 7 feet tall and about that wide as well.  It is definitely some sort of evergreen bush, but i can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.  Here is a picture.

    Its most likely the California Bay Laurel, Umbellularia californica.
