the first one is either poison ivy or boxelder. hard to tell in that pic.

not going to hazard a guess on the second.

Box Elder IMO from pic. BE leaves are opposite and PI leaves are alternate. Also BE tend toward a more uniform green and PI is tinged with a bit of pink/red where the leaves meet the stem and also on the new leaves as a whole. BE can also have between 3-7 leaflets while PI has only 3. Either on should be removed, at any rate.

The first is box elder. Poison Ivy does not have the deep veined leaves.

No idea on the second
