If it were in my area, I might guess it to be sumac. But since none of that is true, that ID might not fit.
The bigger question might be what type water you have and how much the wood will effect your water. If your water is soft, with little buffering, it can change the PH quite a lot.
Wood is not a real problem but it does pay to test and watch for what it might do.
