    1) might be bishops weed… does it bloom?

    2) looks like a dogwood tree surrounded by other trees.

    3) looks like virginia creeper in a patch of vinca… I’d want to get control of the vinca, to prevent it’s spreading…

    I would want to get control of the Virginia creeper. I actually like vinca…

    While the virginia creeper is seedy, and aggressive… it is a native vine that is attractive in the autumn, and wildlife friendly…

    Vinca… on the other hand…
    I spend a lot of time weeding it out of yards where the home-owner made the unfortunate mistake of planting it….

    While vinca minor isn’t quite the wildly invasive exotic pest that vinca major is… it’s bad enough.
