Could you please identify these plants ? I need to know if I should get rid of them...or dig and move them...

Good Afternoon! I've consulted with our Horticulture Specialist and we think it is Prunus serotina, Black Cherry, which has seeded into your garden bed. To learn more: https://plants.ces.ncsu.edu/plants/prunus-serotina/

Thank you for the in depth information, Carrie.
Those plants are now gone.
But I messes up and sent 3 photos of the same plant.
The other "volunteer" is in a back bed by the hyssop
Am Including a picture of it, to see if it can be identified.

Morning! This looks like a mulberry seedling. Removal is also suggested. To learn more: https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/fnr/fnr_237.pdf

Thanks again, Carrie--
I find it amazing that one tree can have so many different shaped leaves.

You are very welcome! Enjoy the fall season!
