Take the small ones, the large ones roots are very cumbersome to deal
with. Cut them down about one foot tall and replant. I cut sumac
down every year at some local sites and a year later, you would never

As for the lemonade, we call it a tea, chalk it up to folk lore, and
go to the store for liptons.
