Looks like Trema sp.

Trema tomentosa (Roxb.) H. Hara ??

Yes, looks different from images at Trema orientalis (L.) Blume. As keys in Flora of China are based on colour of the abaxial and adaxial leaf surface and its hairiness.
 T. tomentosa is possible based on keys in Flora of China

I guess you are right … !

This is also Trema orientalis (L.) Blume … ??

Yes …, seems its also orientalis, once check this,

I still go with T. tometosa, based on these keys.
But still putting it with ?, before someone gives more clarity.
