Staghorn sumac near Greenville City Park (submitted by EH)

This staghorn sumac is growing adjacent to Greenville City Park next to the county government building. Native Americans reportedly smoked the fruit of sumac and made a lemonade-type drink from it. It is not poisonous. Poison sumac, which grows in swampy areas, differs in appearance.
