Help w/Plant Identification

Does anyone know what this is? See pdf attached.

Decidouous, multi-trunked, looks to be suckering...and if memory serves me correctly it doesn't flower...at least not noticeably. No exfoliating bark. I'm trying to look in my Dirr's Hardy Trees and Shrubs book but can't seem to come up with anything.

thx for any input.

First thoughts are of a Saucer Magnolia with lots of suckers
But you would notice the blooms in season

Thx the reply...it could possibly flower but I just don't remember it flowering. Although this isn't a weekly lawn account so I didn't pay that much attention to it. I was leaning towards a virburnum of some kind but that flowers also so I'm not sure...

One other thing, it is located underneath a canopy of pin oaks and only received filtered light.

Are the buds opposite or alternate?I had a hard time decerning from the picture. If they are opposite it could be a lilac. If not, it could be a number of things. Does it have stripey bark? If so it could be a service berry

I didn't pay attention to alternate of opposite buds...although from the picture it appears there are only terminal buds. Sorry, but I don't know what 'stripey' bark is??? Please explain. thx

Its not a butterfly bush the bark is more coarse than that. Not forsythia either. The way it is growing it looks like some type of laurel to me.
