Another tree ident please. Sumac?

Recommended Posts

A really intriguing one. Definitely not Ailanthus (leaflets not notched at the base) nor Sumac, the tree is far too big for Sumac. Maybe a species of Hickory, possibly Red Hickory, Carya ovalis, but confidence is not high.

There is some pretty obscure stuff on this site. There was a varnish tree here to, it blew over and the local farmer cut it up to clear the road, he ended up in A&E with severe burns so did three other people who helped. Black creosote like resin from just under the bark. He was having showers in the middle of the night to wash away all the pus from his oozeing blisters for 6 weeks. He said it wasn't the same as that tree which i was glad to hear! i recon it only 50 years old max
