Pineapple guava/feijoa sellowiana leaves dying

The leaves on my one-year-old pineapple guava are slowly getting black spots, then dying. This is happening to the two plants I planted out into the yard, about 75 feet apart, but not to the two plants that are still in gallon pots, only 15 feet from one of the suffering ones. What is happening? Is it a disease, or nutrient deficiency, or ? Thanks for your help- I would love to be able to grow this delicious fruit here in Dallas!

14' tall free standing poison ivy shrub ??

I have what looks like poison ivy and possibly oak too, growing all over a property I just bought in the Dallas area that had been abandoned for 5 years.
I've already sprayed about 10 gallons of roundup, which has been working.
Problem is, upon walking a new fence line yesterday, I found what looks like giant poison ivy shrubs.
These are free standing shrubs, growing as high as 14' tall.
I googled poison ivy and read that in freestanding form, can get as tall as 4'.
I can't find any reference to it growing 4 times that size.

I've seen poison oak grow into it's own "tree", but these are smooth leaves, pretty sure not poison oak.

Can you please look at my picture link below, and confirm that this really is a "Jurassic park" form of poison ivy? - and if so, is this normal?

I've been spraying roundup with a pump garden sprayer, but all I can think of when seeing stuff like this is the line from the movie Jaws... "I think we're gonna need a bigger boat".

Is it Juniper rust?

I have several large Juniper trees. Just noticed what appears to be rust on lower limbs of two of them(close together). Literature says I should also see see galls but none are visible.

Poison ivy- impostor, or a relative?

I've been killing off poison ivy on our property here in Rockwall for about 3 years, and have now come across a plant that is vining and has the suspicious "leaves of 3" indicator, but the edges of the leaves are different, the leaves are thicker, more fleshy than regular poison ivy, and the stems and leaf veins are reddish colored. What is this plant?

P.s. if this is Todd that answers, thank you very much for the advice on my feijoas- it helped a lot!
