    Tree in Southern Louisiana

    This is a tree we have on my college campus. I pass it every day and every semester.

    Being from the south, there are not many trees that turn this radiant shade in the fall. In fact the majority of trees here remain green or lose all leaves with no real color change. (look at the trees in the background - green, green, green)

    I saw this tree and took a picture of it (actually I was not the only person in love with its color. I saw a few other people taking pictures of it with their camera phones as well haha)

    Now I took this picture in the fall. Right now, being that it is spring, the tree is green. I dont really see any flowers or anything on it right now, but that is not to say that it doesnt flower, I just have not seen any on it as of yet.

    can anyone tell me what it is? I tried looking it up, and i thought perhaps it is some kind of sumac, but im not sure because i've never seen it "berry", which i have read sumacs do. It also look taller than what I read sumacs get to be, but perhaps my perception is off.

    Thankyou in advance to all who can respond!

    Can't be sure because you need a close up picture of a leaflet or a few leaflets.

    RE: Tree in Southern Louisiana

    does this help?

    excuse my crude ms piant drawning, but that is how the branches and leaves are growing. i thought perhaps an illustartion of that would help. i can try and get a picture another day, however since i dont always have my camera with me when im on campus, it may take a few days.
