The first tree looks like some kind of fruit tree,  the second may be a vine, it's hard to tell as both are growing on the fence line.

The first looks a lot like an apple or pear... definitely that genre

The first looks a lot like an apple or pear... definitely that genre. Whether yummy fruit or not, don't know. Pears I have are all white blossom and apples are pink. Some apples haven't bloomed here yet in Ohio.

The second... not a clue.  It's about to burst with blossoms, so you could always wait and see what the flowers and "fruit" look like.

Thank You  Amit  I was thinking Pear too, on the first one.   Pears seem to grow upright like that.   My apples and cherries are blooming but my pears are not.  I hope it is a pear :-).  I don't have a clue on the second one either.  Pretty sure its something the birds like.

I agree--something in the apple/pear family. It could be delicious or not so much since they almost never come true from seed (I assume it was from a seed dropped by a bird sitting on the fence when s/he had to "go"). I also agree that I have no clue about the second one. It almost looks like someone stuck some sort of sedum on a tree. I've never seen anything quite like it. It is definitely not a mulberry as someone suggested--they have those mitten leaves. (If you have mulberries, you know what I mean.)

The second one is oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus). A vine, as noted.
 
We've gotta get close enough to that helmet to pull the choke on it's engine and flood his mind! Or, we could just read this tiny ad:
