    Without flowers I could only speculate for now.

    Top photo- Maybe a species in the buckthorn (Frangula), possible glossy buckthorn (F. alnus) ?

    Bottom photo- Maybe a species in the avens genus (Geum), possible white avens (G. canadensis)?

    Flowers are needed for these suggested ID. Perhaps you could give us an update as these grow more mature. Thank you &best wishes!
    Link to white avens.
