Question Asked: Is this poison ivy?

Answer: Hi Joe. From the pictures you sent in (the other 2 were a bit fuzzy), this looks to be a young tree. I'm not as strong in identifying young trees - perhaps a maple or sycamore? I'll have to leave final identification to another. Poison ivy leaf structure is trifoliate - meaning it has a a 3 part leaf with the middle leaf (or leaflet) on a longer stalk.
