This tree is also called Persian Silk tree or just Silk Tree. Native to Asia, it's a common ornamental tree in this area, but has gone "native", and is considered by some to be an invasive species.
Wineberries (Rubus pheonicolasius) are an introduced species related to Raspberries. They live in disturbed areas like roadsides, or recently cut forests; the continuously eroding cliffs are a good habitat for them. They, too, are considered an invasive species, with the potential for out competing native blackberries and raspberries.
