The Flameleaf Sumac, Rhus copallina, is a shrub or occasionally a small tree. When left alone it will often form thickets. It is widespread in open uplands along fence rows and in waste places. It is a prolific sprouter after a fire. Leaves have a winged axis and turn flame red to dark purple in the fall, hence the common name. Fruit matures in late summer remaining attached into winter and is eaten by many species of birds and white-tailed deer. White-tailed deer also use it as a browse.
