These sumac trees run rampant in our area.
We are forever trying to keep them out of the yard, but they slowly creep in nonetheless.
It has been 6 days since we last mowed the lawn, and wouldn't you know, smack dab in the middle of the backyard, there is one that is about 6 inches high right now.
These things spread by their roots, but this one is ridiculous.
The root has got be to stretching over 20 feet for that one to be growing where it is.
They are such a pain, but in the spring, and especially the fall, I must admit they are one of my favorite things to photograph - hey if you can't beat them, join them!
