Hi everyone. I found this guy growing near my property line, I believe it's coming from my neighbours property. Would someone be able to confirm if it is a plant or not? thank you!

Regards
Roy

Well I can tell you it definitely is a plant Hilarious!
Just not sure if it is considered to be invasive in your particular area!

Most likely Tiger Eyes Staghorn sumac. It can spread with long underground root stolons (stems).

Thank you everyone for the replies. I think Leftwood is right, it looks exactly like the tiger eyes staghorn sumac.

Follow up question. Is it possible to root a clipping?

Thanks for the help!

Don't know about using top growth, but a root cutting should go easily. A 4-6 inch piece ought to be plenty.
