I need help, how would i go about using online resources to identify these two plants?

One is a tree, one is a shrub.

Thanks for any help that can be given. I'm a novice.

Welcome Dan. Post these two photos in the Plant ID forum here on NGA. I'm sure you will get your answer. You may be asked where you saw them, or if you have a closer view.

Sandi is correct, the Plant ID forum is the best way to go in getting a plant identified.

A guess from me would be Liriope on the small plant and, based on how that trunk looks to me, a young Arizona ash tree. But those are guesses. Help on the Plant ID forum is likely to be a lot more specific.

Agree with Liriope on the first. Agree with "where are they growing" and "can you take a closer picture of foliage, stems, buds, etc.".

Second one looks like it could be a Mulberry species (Morus sp.) with what appears to be simple alternate lobed foliage - from here, anyway...
