More of A great day in Pennsylvania we had 8/27/09

  This is a Sumac tree, Sue is the other one a male and this a female? They are growing nest to each other. Do you know what this tree is? Gypsy Moths, so sad yet intriguing to see. More Gypsy Moths, so sad...it looks so mysterious.

It seems that some Sumac are poisonous and others not.

These trees grow wild by the river and have been there for as long as I can remember.

I really dont know for sure what Kind of trees they are, it was suggested they may be sumac.

I know they are beautiful and much loved by everyone who visits the river side.

Not sure. I think poison sumac is more like a vine, like poison oak. But I could be wrong. Up here in WI we have sumac all over and they even use it to landscape along highways. It\'s a shrub, though up here. When we went south we notice how the sumacs grow so tall they are practically trees. So I don\'t have a positive id for you. Lovely pix, though. Hugs, Sue
