That's a Winged Sumac - Rhus copallina. Note the winged rachis (midrib) of the pinnate compound leaves where the leaflets attach. This feature is absent from the other native Sumac species.

This species is also known as Shining Sumac, due to the high gloss leaves compared to other species like Smooth Sumac (Rhus glabra), Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina), and Fragrant Sumac (Rhus aromatica).
