Devils Club (Oplopanax horridus) is aptly named if you ever have had to scramble through some. There are needles all over the trunk and along the leaves too.
It likes wet conditions and usually is about 6-8 feet tall, but this specimen was pushing 14 feet. I was amazed.

Huge! Don’t know if I ever encountered it but have been scratched up by barbed shrubs while hiking.
