Rhus... Rhus typhina, common name stag's horn sumach...

I'm wondering why its got a 'bendy' trunk though! If it's that, although treelike, it should be small for a tree...

my first thought was Rhus too. bendy wonder if they meant curved as that fits .
welcome to GoY too:o)

If that's what it is watch out for suckers popping up at some distance away.
