Hi All,
I have 2 trees that I've been wondering what they were...

Theis set of pics is from a tree that has a white trunk. The leaves are interesting, one side is green (top side) and the other is a silvery soft texture (bottom side).

Any info on the tree would be very very much appreciated. THANKS!!!

This looks like white poplar (Populus alba). It's an exotic species that is invasive in some areas. It spreads mostly by root suckers, often forming dense thickets.
