what is this. it turns kind of pretty red in the fall. but i'm pretty sure i want to kill it and install a deer plot in it's place.

what is it? and how do i get rid of it?

cut it off then spray shoots with round-up?

SUMAC...not buckthorn

you can spray with Garlon if you have a license and it will kill the stuff standing.........cut and burn, a little bit of garlon spray to kill the new stuff that comes up from seeds

it is kind of pretty in the fall. but it seems out of control.

is this the poisonous kind? i googled it and i see people eating parts of the plant.
