Has 9 leaflets on each stem . Could it be poison sumac? The leaves are toothed. Growing on the bank of the Chattahoochee river

    The banks of the Hooch would be a likely environment for PS but, “it appears as a tall shrub or small tree with alternate leaves with 7-11 leaflets arranged in pairs, and an additional single leaflet at the end of the midrib.” The leaves in your pix also have fine serrations that I don’t see on Poison Sumac. I’ve never seen a live specimen but have always been warned to watch out for “thunderwood trees” and, so I do. Not sure about this one. Proceed with caution!

    It’s sumac but not poison.
