ID weed please!

Hello

I'm confused as to whether or not these plants are weeds. Could someone identify them for me please?

Thanks!

The larger trifoliate-leaved weed to the left in the picture is quite likely POISON IVY. The smaller trifoliate plant to the right in the picture looks more like either skunkbush or fragrant sumac. All three of these plants are in the same genus, but other than a weird odor when crushed, the skunkbush or fragrant sumac are not irritants like poison ivy.

thanks! There are poison ivy all over the ground yes, but the bright green leaves aren't part of a tree or shrub I think...any ideas what it might be growing from the ground?

If you mean the lighter green leaves on the right, that would be juvenile foliage on skunkbush or fragrant sumac. The picture I linked to was mature foliage.

The light green plant with the strait stem is jewelweed. The sap is used to conteract the oils in poison ivy. They are often seen growing close to each other.
