Trees popping up all over the place. Need help identifying them. Green leaves with a purple vein and stem, grows into big bushes/small trees.

It looks like it is related to Euphorbia. If you remove a leaf do you get white sap? It also reminded me of Dogbane

Given your location, it's more likely some species of Rhus (Sumac). Probably Rhus laurina aka Laurel Sumac
Hard to decipher until it blooms.

It could be Prunus serotina? But I think JasperDales identification is also possible and probably right.
