Sandyboy...........it could be that the poor old Sumach gets a bad press as a garden tree.
It can be a real pain in the wrong location....i.e. most gardens. The biggest problem comes when they are pruned, cut down or whatever as the continual suckers are a real nightmare.
Do you know anyone who has this tree ? If you do and can find some suckers, whip one off. They don't take that long to grow to enough of a size to give you that graceful shape and wonderful Autumn colour.
I grow one in a large pot having gone thru the trauma of removing one which was in totally the wrong place. You may like to do the same to save yourself the angst in future years.
