1. This one is a cutting just planted recently in my backyard. Its mother plant is pretty much a tree (I've linked its Google Street View photo):



Its mother plant in Google Street View (screenshot):


2. This is another cactus species (or so I think) which I found elsewhere and it doesn't seem to grow like a tree:



What cactus species could they be (I know that cactus plant appear very indistinguishable at times)? My plant identifier app says they may be dragon fruit cactus (hylocerus) or blue myrtle cactus (myrtillocactus). I doubt it's the former, but I've been thinking they could be similar to the latter, especially the first specimen?

Any ideas with the first one?

(Second one is Cereus Peruvianus, as confirmed by wit-nit through reputation comment)

Although the second (large photo) is not very clear it appears all the cacti are in the same cereus peruviana family.
