I was hoping someone could help me identify this.

I see it everywhere as an understory in sandy soil on top of the canadian shield. It can be very fragrant. I am wondering what it is, and perhaps if it's good for anything, and if goats will eat it safely.

Thanks.

As it turns out, the pictures I took are crap. I'll try to get better ones unless someone can ID based on my description.

Hi, It's really hard to see, and I'm no expert, but could it be a Sumac, possibly Staghorn Sumac( R. Typhina) ?

I'm not good enough to make out the subspecies, but I'm sure its sumac. Thanks for that!

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
