What is this tree?

Can you please tell me what this tree is? Can I harvest the seeds to bring back and plant when I move back to Dublin next year? I want to be sure it's non-invasive for Ireland too. SuzyH, Boston, USA, Outside Ireland Posted: 05/11/2017

This is a species of euonymus or spindle tree. Which species is difficult to say. 

The seeds are best sown fresh and may not do so well aster a year.

But there is a native Irish spindle... Euonymus euopaeus 'Red Cascade' being a good garden form.
