Acer ceriferum, Acer palmatum 'Trompenberg', Acer davidii (from Shennongia Forest District), Cornus controversa variegata
The top picture is Acer ceriferum, an obscure Chines Maple that I've had no prior experience with; nice orange foliage. Trompenberg is an old standby in the trade....go figure. We have a number of different Acer davidii; this one has an especially nice display of fall color that is significantly later than most of the others (many of whom are mostly defoliated now). Cornus controversa 'Variegata' is a tree that is beloved around the world in zones 6-7-8. In the fall a pink overlay infused the creamy variegation of the leaves.
