Here is the first one:
And the Second (with taproot picture):
Any help with identification and eradication would be wonderful. Thanks!
1st one is Cyperus.
2nd - some kind of baby trees?
Thanks on the ID of the first one. I further IDed it to Cyperus Retrorsus
The second Is very hearty. The stem resembles a twig, and it takes quite a bit of force to pull that tap root out of the ground. Could it be some type of wild shrub?
Edit: Found this vacant lot with 3 foot tall versions of this stuff... Check the links and pics

Absolutely could. Sorry, I don't know what it is though.
