Poisonous or not?

Plant ID: Staghorn Sumac <> Poison Sumac

Staghorn Sumacs are abundant and right now you can easily spot them by their colorful red berries.

Poison Sumacs are extremely rare in our area. Look at the difference of the flowers, the berries, the edges of the leaves and the hairiness of the stems.

So if you see a Sumac with bright red berries – go get some and make that delicious sumac lemonade!
