    Looks like Polyscias fruticosa, Ming Aralia.

    I agree with the Aralia ID. I wish you the best of luck, I've never been able to keep an Aralia alive, they're a tad temperamental.

    It looks in desperate need of a fresh pot up and feed. By the size of the trunk and how deep the plant sits in the pot, I'd say the pot would be a mass of roots by now perhaps?
    Lift the plant out and fill the pot up so the plant will sit higher, put a small amount on top (don't bury the trunk). You could go a bigger pot but not too much as the plant has a small rootball and the mix would get too wet.
