Is this a sumac or a bee bee tree? It is probably 15 feet tall.

It looks like Rhus copallina (Winged Sumac).

I don't remember sumac having the "leafy wings" running between the leaflets...

I haven't seen Winged Sumac before, either, so I hope someone confirms the ID. Smiling

What's a bee bee tree?

It does look like Winged Sumac.

I really don't know anything about sumac or the Bee Bee tree. I was hoping it was a bee bee tree but upon further inspection it looks to be more like a sumac to me. From what I understand they are both great sources for nectar and pollen for the honey bees.
@Daisyl. This is the scientific name for the Bee Bee tree. Tetradium daniellii
