is this a Staghorn tree?? Does it look healthy or not?

Yes, that's a Sumach (Staghorn tree) and it looks fine to me - perhaps a little touch of frost or wind damage, that's all.

Excellent thank you. It's just been neglected for a few seasons from previous tennant. Some of the red stems were nearly falling off or really damaged so i removed them and pruned it back to the leg of the tree. Is this correct and will they grow back?

I'd have to look that up, I'm afraid, but someone else might know the answer. I'll come back to you later, if nobody does.

Steve. Just leave them on the tree, they fall off on their own when the time is right.
