What Plant Is This
What is this plant in this photo? It came up by itself, has alternate, sort of crinkly,slighty thick leaves, woody stems and was suggested to be a sumac. It is about 22-24 inches high at the moment. It has no flowers as of yet. If it causes a rash we need to get rid of it! Please help!
