Sorry for the crap quality, and thank you in advanced for your time.

All these plants are located within 10m of a river in zone 9b. Sierra foothills, California.

#1 looks like it might be hazelnut, which is native to the area, but it's a little hard to tell in this photo.
#2 looks like black walnut, which has golf-ball sized nuts which have a husk that is yellow on the tree, fall when ripe, and turn brownish-black
#3 is hard to tell from the photo, but maybe coffeeberry (Rhamnus californica)?
