Wild tree in the hill slope from Kullu area of Himachal

Pictures are not clear.

It is Rhus succedaneae L. (? Rhus succedanea L. synonym of Toxicodendron succedaneum)

It seems to be Toxicodendron vernicifluum (Stokes) F.A. Barkley

Toxicodendron wallichii (Hook.f.) Kuntze I guess since this is the only sp. listed in the book Plants of Indian Himalayan Region !

I think may be Toxicodendron succedaneum (L.) Kuntze as per comparative images and details at Rhus
However, it is difficult to confirm with these images.
