We recently moved to a new house with two of these mystery trees in the backyard. I've looked everywhere online and have not been able to identify them. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Lucky you! Beautiful shrubs. I have them myself. And they are easy to propagate if you want more.
Stick some cuttings in the ground in winter where you want them to grow. Come spring, new shrubs.

My plants do indeed appear to be ninebarks. Thanks so much for everyone's help, and thanks quercusnut for the tip!
