Are stag-horn sumacs good as yard trees?

I was wanting to plant a stag-horn sumac in my front yard but wanted to make sure they would make a good tree.

The staghorn sumac is an attractive yard tree, exhibiting good fall color and an interesting shape, growing to ten to fifteen feet. In some areas, it may make suckers off of the roots, eventually forming a small grove. If a single tree is preferred, simply remove or mow the suckers in spring.

Staghorn sumacs are survivors and can grow in most soil. Cutleaf staghorns are sometimes used as ornamental garden plants. Staghorns can also be used for windbreaks and they have beautiful fall foilage. Spiky red berry clumps attract birds, deer and other small animals.

The shrub type of stag-horn sumacs would be good yard trees. It is best suited for garden or farm and in yards.
