So, I recently bought some property in southern indiana and started clearing trees off an old chicken coup concrete slab. There have been alot of the same tree that I initially thought was smooth sumac; however, this fall the leaves didn't turn that bright red color. I am now leaning toward heaven tree. Agree?

One way you can tell tree of heaven is by the smell. Break open a branch. It will smell like rancid peanut butter.

Ailanthis, aka Ghetto Palm, aka Tree of heaven ( because it stinks to high heaven).
Grows fast in almost any conditions, therefore it competes with other more desirable trees for water, sunlight,and space. The wood is weak because it grows so fast and it does not make good firewood. Other than that it's a good tree.
