Hi! Can anyone identify what type of branch this is? I think it's a sucker from a tree that was cut down. My son is covered in hives and I am thinking it may be from this branch. We are in Central Valley, Ca.

Hi Sean 😁
I live in S.J. valley also. It looks like a star Jasmine, or maybe a honeysuckle to me. Jasmine has star shaped white flowers. Honeysuckle a yellow flower.
Wont know till it blooms.
Break a piece of stem. If sticky white juice flows out, its a Jasmine, but, i believe, a honeysuckle does the same. I'm thinking that the sap is what MIGHT ! be causing your sons allergic reaction.
Keep him out of it. Till you find out what he is allergic to. It could de something eles he got into. Junipers are bad. Lots of other things also.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Are the leaves alternate? I was thinking Amur Honeysuckle but that has opposite leaves.

The leaves appear to be alternate. It kind of reminds me of the very invasive Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) but I'm really bad at looking at photos for comparison and I don't know if any part of that tree causes skin irritation.

Lots of photos here:

Looks a bit like rough leaf dogwood, but it has alternate leaves so it's not...

Not Ailanthus altissimo as that has compound leaves and this appears to have individual leaves. Not sure what it is though.
