I'm new to gardening but very interested in it. I just moved to a property that has a lot of existing plants and trees that I would love to know what they are so I can look into taking care of them properly. Any help is much appreciated, thank you!

Welcome! CKorangy

It would be helpful if we knew where you were and what zone you're in. You can add that by going to your profile (little person in upper right corner).

You have some very interesting trees in your yard. . .

#2 looks like some kind of Holly but since I'v never really seen a Holly bush I'm guessing.

#4 Looks like some kind of Acacia. or maybe Honey Locust. Do you see any bean like pods on the ground? Acacia is a smallish tree or shrub with thorns. A Honey Locust can be very large with long hairy brown pods that fall in winter.

But I could be completely wrong because I don't know where you are. Smiling

Are pics 1 & 2 of the same type tree/shrub? 1st is definitely some type of oak (Quercus sp.). I believe the 2nd may be as well. Not sure about any of the others.

1. is a dead Oak tree

2. is a live Live Oak Tree - probably a Scrub Oak

3. Might be Chamise

4. California Pepper

5. ?
