Can you ID this tree?

Post by Pointman » Tue Apr 28, 2020 4:31 pm

I have several pictures of Chinaberry, Staghorn and Smooth Sumac, Western Soapberry and Tree of Heaven. All have a terminal leaflet at the end. This one does not and I'm having a hard time getting a positive ID. Anyone have a clue?

I'd guess winged sumac, elderberry or soapberry. Hard to tell really. Any of last years berries or otherwise on the ground that you noticed?

My guess is Chinese Pistachio, second guess would be Western Soapberry, which does not have a terminal leaf. Both are even numbered leaves, with slight alternating along the twig.
