Hi ,

I'm working on my first garden for months, I'm spending a lot of energy to understand the garden.
I have this trees that my grandfather who passed away planted. I really need help identifying so I know what to do with them. For example I found out that the second one of them can be acacias, but i'm not sure.

SO I want to understand this trees. I'll post them one after the other.
The name and any other info is more than welcome.

the 3rd photo is belonging to the tree in the 4th photo.
the tree in the 5th photo is still small.

Many thanks for helping.

I agree the first is a Yucca
Second looks Schinus molle, "Peruvian Pepper tree"
The fifth one could also be Jacaranda mimosifolia

I have both Jacaranda and Albizia, and to me the 5th picture looks a little more like Jacaranda, but it's just a gut feeling when I first looked at it, can't put my finger on a particular characteristic that makes me think that. They do have similar looking leaves so I could definitely be wrong.
