Chinese privet

This is an example of Ligustrum sinense in the family Oleaceae:

I found this plant along the road leading into Mule Jail on April 28, 2007.  This plant is not native to the United States and according to Wikipedia, was introduced from southeast Asia as an ornamental plant.

By the by, the National Parks Service has a pdf on invasive species that is worth a look.
