2 more plants to ID

I spied with my little eye... a stick with a flower. So I grabbed a shovel and trekked through a swamp to dig up this stick with a flower. I think it's a magnolia but I'm not positive..







Ok so, this one needs kind of an explanation. While digging up the stick I got attacked by briers. It was like... a long vine thing with little serrated leaves on it. And I look down and it has a dozen suckers that all look like miniature rose bushes. I was in the woods covered in mud so I didn't have my camera, so I just ripped up one of the suckers.
I am 5'6 and it was at least 1.5ft above me, but it was twisted with itself with its long viney branches and so it was bent over in a U shape. it was covered in short thorns.
Was it a giant rose bush of some sort!?!? Should I go dig up the entire thing!?!?
Here's some pictures of the sucker I pulled up--there are no thorns on it.

Maple and rose.

Yes - the first one is not a flower bud but maple leaves unfurling. The rose could be R multiflora, a big invasive in the US.
