I think this might be native -- it thrives here and we even have some volunteers. The 2 in our yard are about 15' and 25'. They turn yellow, then a beautiful red in autumn and have little berries in late spring (I think). Help -- what is it?

Chinese Pistachio.  We had one in the backyard but it was hard to access for pruning.  We had it removed after several years.  I loved the leaves for composting.  ID California Tree, Please Hot_ho13

Thanks, S. Can we do anything with the berries?

According to the UC Master Gardener Program of Sonoma County":

"While related to the pistachio tree, this species does not produce nuts. However, if a male Chinese pistache is planted nearby, the female tree can develop clumps of ornamental, inedible bright red berries in fall, which turn blue-purple in winter. The berries are a source of food for birds."

Thanks, OG. Too bad it doesn't produce nuts, but it is beautiful. I love you

The red berries are food for some birds, so, they aren't going to waste. They were nasty to clean up around the patio but it was fun to watch the birds eat them.
