Ist post - please forgive if I'm doing this wrong. I need to identify a plant that crosses our property boundary. Overall it is about 3 metres tall, fairly straight stalks covered in tight spherical clusters of tiny white flowers, the clusters are very tight and roughly 3-4 cms in diameter. The leaves are about 1-2 cms in length, simple, entire, dark green above and below, and some have vague points to the ends. I have included a close up of a piece. Any help woud be appreciated before the neighbour cuts it down!

looks like a Viburnum.  I don't think it's the snowball bush [opulus 'Sterile'] but maybe Viburnum Burkwoodii.   Have a look at that one.

Looks very much like one of the Viburnums, but without a close up of the leaves it is a bit hard to go any further.

Looks a bit like spiraea trilobata from the small leaves I can see. Have a look at this site.http://www.whiteflowerfarm.com/67436-product.html

yes I think you could be right it does look like that.  It's rather nice, I wonder if it's scented.
