    1. If there is a similar on up the street, ask the neighbor, they may know. 2. ask at or email the pic to a local nursery, as it is obviously indigenous to your area.

    It may be winged Sumac....

    My guess would be and ash or walnut, but not an expert, lol.
  • Deb Deb on Oct 06, 2016
    Could it be ar rhus tree (Toxicodendron succedaneum)

    Looks like a Sumac. Don't eat the berries. If it is Sumac, they are poison to animals and people.

      Leaves are poisonous too...these trees grow like weeds...spreading root system

    Looks like Sumac.Does it get the Indian red flower like cones?

    Looks just like the pistache hybrid in our backyard - a pistachio tree that is non-nutbearing. Our particular variety is called "Red Push" because the new growth in early spring comes out red. It also does "fall" color in a glorious way - reds, oranges and yellows. Great shade tree, highly drought resistant and low water once established, can grow to 40'. We love them so much we have planted 8 at various properties we have worked on.

      Hi Susie, I see that you have experience with Red Push pistache and that you have some trees. I've been looking for a source of Red Push seeds, and have been unable to find them. Any chance you'd be willing to sell me some? (Assuming your trees have fertile seeds). Please let me know

    Don't think this is a Sumach
  • Wendy Wendy on Oct 06, 2016
    take a few leaves to a nursery to find out for sure

    Looks like a coffee tree
  • Sue Sanders Sue Sanders on Oct 07, 2016
    I have a Kentucky Coffee tree and the leaves are shaped like yours but not as long. Don't know if this coffee tree comes in different varieties. My tree is fast growing and is quite tall. It gets long pods lined with seeds.

    The berries on the tree look like the Pink Peppercorn tree but I agree with Johnchip. I'd ask at the nursery. Take a small branch and a bunch of the berries in a sealed plastic bag....If you've never touched it before, use gloves to insert the small branch and berries in the bag, just in case it is in the poisonous family of trees/plants
  • Judy Judy on Oct 08, 2016
    Take some pictures or a take in a branch to a good garden centers and have one of their horticulturist take a look at it.
  • Susie Susie on Oct 09, 2016
    google "red push pistache" and I think you'll se this is the tree in question
  • Susie Susie on Nov 03, 2016
    I'm not sure if the red push pistache grows from seed or not, but our tree has made a huge number of seeds this year. We are lucky enough to Arizona Pistachio nursery in Tucson - he supplies all kinds of pistachio trees all around the world. If you want to send me a self addressed stamped envelope of some durability, I am happy to mail you some seeds from our tree to try.
    • Old grayfellow Old grayfellow on Nov 06, 2016
      Hi Susie, That would be great, thank you so much!! I can certainly send you a stamped self addressed envelope. About Arizona Pistachio nursery- i have contacted them but they only sell trees, (and i think rather large ones at that), and seeds are really what i want. About the seeds; my understanding is that, at least with the related Pistacia chinensis, only the seeds that turn blue or purple late in ripening are actually fertile, while those that stay red are not fertilized and won't grow. So, if that's also the case with Red Push, it would be best to send the blue/purple ones. Again, thank you so much for your kind offer to send seeds. Thanks!
