    Thanks guys. Still unsure whether itís the poisonous variety or not. They are all over the property and I only want to remove the one branch that fell down close to our road. Guess I could always tyvek it up to be sure.

    I think thereís an app for smartphones that will identify plants for you. All you do is take a pic or 2 of the plant and the app identifies the plant.

    As mentioned before that is Staghorn Sumac, Rhus typhina, the most common Sumac around.

    Very aggressive and it spreads fast.

    The berries can be used to make lemonade from if your the adventuresome type.

    Also known as staghorn sumac...definitely not poisonous....a pink lemonade type of drink can be made from the red fruit.......I've made it drank it, and still here.....again....definitely not poisonous, nor should it break you out in any kind of rash.

    I just want to add that bees love it and will make a good honey crop from it.

    Poison Sumac?

    That's Staghorn Sumac and it's not poisonous. Good food for birds and other wildlife. Here's a link to Ohio State weed guide -

    Poison has white berries. We actually used the variety that you show for making sap spiles when making maple syrup. Cut the branches into 5" lengths, taper one end round to tap into the tree and taper the other end to fit inside a milk jug easily and you have your homemade spile. The branches have a soft pithy center that can be reamed out to let the sap out.
