Third one looks like common juniper: Medicinal Plants-Common Juniper
Next-to-the-last one might be winged sumac: Rhus copallina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Suggestion: consider editing to number the photos, and changing the title to "Need help identifying trees" or "Calling horticulturists": in my understanding (which might be wrong) arborists are more the guys who help with tree growing / cultivating / trimmng (as in tree-surgeons).
You might also print these and visit the parks-and-recreation department or whoever is in charge of the place you found them. The plant guy there might be able to rattle off all the names off the top of his head.

Thanks. The edit function wont let me edit the title. Maybe a mod could be a sweatheart and do it for me?
I am almost positive the last one is a mamosa(sp?). The leaves curled before I got it home.

Third from last is a Live Oak.
Fifth from last is some type of cedar.
First looks like a bitternut hickory.

#6 Might be Mockernut Hickory
The list one might be Chinese Silk Tree aka Mimosa but I cannot tell if it is.

#2 is a fuchsia. I don't know what variety it is.
December 12th, 2011 08:25 PM
Okay great! #3,5, and 7 are positively identified at juniper, live oak, and a mamosa, respectably.
Keep the guesses coming for the remainder. It doesn't have to be super scientific (its only 4th grade) but close enough equals a A+ :)
We will be going out to the park tomorrow night to gather some more specimens.
