Poison Sumac grows wild in the eastern one-third of the United States and Texas, Louisiana, and Minnesota. If you live in one of those states, you might be able to find someone who has it growing wild and would let you remove it for free. Since it is both poisonous and invasive (spreads relentlessly), most people would be happy to have it removed. has a plant exchange bulletin board. Many helpful gardeners will share their plants.
