I tried the app from Texas A&M that Texas Ranger recommended and got Ash.  Agree or too young to tell?

No! No!  That is wrong.  Not sumac.  I believe that it is black walnut. Notice that the terminal leaflet has aborted, a unique characteristic of black walnut.  Sumac has a terminal leaflet.

I could understand that logic if we were talking about some exotic wood that only grows above 10,000 ft elevation and north of 50 latitude in say interior Uzbekistan or something, then yes the 4:27 would be acceptable - disappointing, but defensible.  

But we are discussing black walnut here.....  I mean what's next you gonna start using two syllable words all the time now and retire from being a sesquipedalian extraordinaire or something?  :D

I wrote myself up for poor performance and documented it in my Personel file.  I have put myself on an improvement plan  :).

Notice that the terminal leaflet has aborted, a unique characteristic of black walnut.  Sumac has a terminal leaflet.
This is good to know - will definitely remember this going forward.  Ash/pecan/hickory all have a terminal leaflet, correct?

Lol, I always like to look at these and make a guess before I see what Danny says.  I looked at this and thought it was walnut, until I saw Danny's answer.  I was disappointed that I was wrong.  Thennnnn I saw I was right!

I was just going to modify my post and correct it, but I did the stand up thing and admitted that I made a mistake ::).  First one that I have ever made ::).
