Notes:

This is growing in the middle of a field. I was concerned it might be poison sumac as it seems to fit all the criteria, except for the wetlands part. There are also trees along the edge of this field that fit the description of the poison sumac tree.

    It looks like smooth sumac (Rhus glabra).

    Poison sumac is RARE, only growing in wet areas, has WHITE berries.
