Anyone know what this plant is? It grows in the wild by the pine trees where we cut wood.

Can you post a picture of the whole plant? I know what it looks like but want to make sure.

No, sorry, I didn't think to take the whole plant. It's bushy and maybe 8 feet tall.

Thanks. That gives me a place to start to see if it is. I'll do some more looking and reading about it.
