I'm nowhere near an expert but I believe the second tree is some type of oak.

I believe both the trees would be good firewood...

First one looks like choke cherry.  They don't get very big or tall.  The second looks like black oak.  They're both good for firewood.  The black oak is also good for lumber. 

How about putting those pics into your gallery so that you can link them right into your message.  We don't really allow offsite photos.  People who have dial up (and there are several) will have a problem.  And, every message ever posted to this forum is still here.  That allows others to see your posts well into the future.  Here's how you do it.  http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,61788.0.html   Thanks.

The vine looks like bittersweet. When I first looked at pics I was thinking cherry of some sort and an oak, but I am not good at this 'what is this tree' game and depend on others myselft.  ::)

The first tree is non-merchantable and the second is a scarlet oak.  Maybe a black oak.
