Asking for 2 reasons. I asked the landlord if any of the trees on the property were fruit trees, and he said he *thinks* there is, but doesn't know which tree or what kind of fruit! Then there's some random bushes that are just.. in the way in the yard. I'd like to know what they are before digging them up, in case I might actually want to let them be, or try and transplant them somewhere else.

Can you get closeup photos of the leaf structure (and flowers if they have them) and tell us what growing zone you are in?

Close-ups will help identify.  First photo, without looking at the base, looks like it's sprout from either a stump, or below the graft.  Grapevine and blackberry (beneath).  The next two are definitely fruit trees.  The first pear or apple, the next, ummm... close-ups, yes.

The second and third pictures look like cherry and apple to me. The first picture of the bush doesn't give me fruit vibes.

Finally took more pics! And now that someone's mentioned, I do see grape like characteristics, like the last pic where a piece is wrapping around another plant. They are growing so close and intertwined it took me tll now to realize there were 2 plants! Those were some of what I was considering diggng up. If there's grapesinvolved, I will definitely let them be. Really trying to clean up the yard. Sooo overgrown but otherwise enormous with so much potential to be beautiful! it'll be exciting later in the summer to see what goodies those trees give us :) ahh, we really scored finding this house. Loooove it.

 

 

edit: @@ downloading tapa talk was supposed to make it more convenient to upload pics because i could snap a pic with my phone, then upload directly to mdc. then i have to mess around with editing the post anyway when the pics didn't even work!

Yes, vine is a grape.  Other is a cherry (see serrated leaves and horizontal marks on bark).  If the cherry is small, it's probably sprouts of the rootstock or a wild hybrid.  Flavor and color are variable; some are very good fresh eating, others for baking, some might be bitter.  Always a pretty tree, though, and a favorite of birds.  Even if the fruit is tasty, good luck beating the birds to them!
