Photographed along Sycamore Creek in the Pine Mountain Wilderness, Yavapai Co., Arizona, USA. 07 June 2009.
LEAVES: Winter deciduous, compound leaves have usually three or five, or
sometimes seven, dentate leaflets. Occasionally leaves are not divided down to
midrib and in that case are not compound; leaf morphology even on the same tree
can vary considerably. The shiny, dark green leaves could be mistaken by a
novice as poison ivy.
