I think the Fraxinus is a good suggestion for the left-side tree and the right looks, maybe, like a Fig.

All pics of Fraxinus for me. Not sure which species, though.

Opposite arrangement, pinnately compound, clear cluster of samaras/seeds, ridged/furrowed bark replete with lichens/moss - all points to Ash (Fraxinus sp.) to me.

The thicker glossy leaflets in image #4 say White Ash (Fraxinus americana) to me. A closeup of the stems and leaf scars when dormant can make a positive ID on this species.

Photos 1, 2, & 3 are of the same tree.

Photos 4 & 5 are of another tree close by - which I thought was of the same type - the leaves were more accessible to reach for a photo shot.

Further photos of the same tree as in photos 1, 2, & 3.

Thank you, all.

PS Please, see my next entry!

In order to reduce the choices in the genus Fraxinus, I think you should collect a branch and bring it somewhere to get closeups.

Snapping the compound leaf off the stem will reveal the leaf scar - or collect enough branch to show some of previous years' leaf scars - and this will give more information to separate species. Also, showing buds will help. Many of the Ash members have different color and pubescence on the buds. Ash will also vary in how glaucous the undersides of the leaflets are.

Fall foliage color is another way, but we'll have to wait a while to see that.
