    I need some help identifying this bush/shrub.
    It’s starting to grow over in to yard where I mow.
    I’m highly allergic to Poison ivy and Oak.
    What I don’t know is if it is Poison Sumac.
    I’m hoping some here knows before I go to cutting it back?

    That looks like regular sumac but don't take my word for it. Poisen sumac will look spiney on the back side.

    Yes, the lack of red stems has me questioning it as well.
    Plus, I haven’t seen any berries that look like the ones pictured.
    Only thing I have seen are small flowers. No berries, but it may be too early for berries yet?

    All the stems would end in a single leaf.

    The lack of the single leaf at the end of the sprig is the one thing that caused me to doubt that it is poisonous Sumac.

    Sumac tree, still in bush stage, will be a scrub sumac tree if not taken out in this stage. Not poisonous, just prolific at the edge of a woods, tree line, etc.
