  1. I’m not 100% positive, but that looks like what we call a “locust” tree. My grandfather struggles to stop them from sprouting in his front lawn. We have some growing over our septic tank and on the edge of our backyard. The flowers resemble white wisteria and smell quite lovely. The only bad thing about them is some of the branches have long thorns, where poison sumac does not. Another indication for me is the leaf shape; poison sumac has smooth leaves that come to a pointed tip and locust is smooth and has a rounded tip. Finally, poison sumac rarely grows anywhere else, but in swampy soil. This could be poison sumac, but I can’t quite distinguish it since it’s not physically in front of me.
