Help identifying a wild tree in my yard

Simi Valley, CA

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

Long Beach, CA(Zone 10a)

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

Heerlen, Netherlands(Zone 8b)

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