Notes:

My wife had broken out in a rash. We are not sure from working in our backyard. Thought it kind of looks like Poison Sumac. But, the stem isn’t red.

    I can’t see more details to be certain. I’m guessing only here, this might be an ash species of the Fraxinus genus if the branching is opposite (poison sumac is alternate). Check out these included links below. The first link is for the American ash species (F. americana), click on the images to view the ash leaflet, leaf scar etc… Best wishes! http://www.ibiblio.org/openkey/intkey/web/FRAM2.htm
