Notes:

These are the trees that grow at the edge of the field where the other photos of the ground plant grow (also poison sumac?). My wife and I don’t appear to be affected by poison ivy or oak, but we do have visitors and would like to warn them off if it is poison sumac. Again, it is not that wet an environment although there is a small pond about 150 yards away.

    As I mentioned in your other post, smooth sumac. The red berries can be harvested for a lemony beverage. As pestiferous as this sumac can be with it’s habit of colonizing open areas, it is considered a wildlife plant. http://juliezickefoose.blogspot.com/2009/02/sumac-wildlife-survival-food.html

    This is regular sumac. Not poisonous at all. I use it in dried flower arrangements. The berries are also used as a condiment in Persian cooking.

    These are common sumac (safe sumac) trees. Enjoy them! Check these links http://www.poison-sumac.org/ and http://plants.usda.gov/java/county?state_name=Georgia&statefips=13&symbol=TOVE
