    A lacquer tree is an East Asian deciduous tree, scientifically known as Toxicodendron vernicifluum or Rhus verniciflua, and a member of the Anacardiaceae family, which is cultivated for its sap. This sap is used to produce a highly glossy and durable lacquer used to create decorative and functional objects. It's often used in traditional Asian art and craftsmanship, like varnishing pottery, wooden furniture, or for lacquerware. The sap of the lacquer tree can cause a severe allergic reaction upon contact with skin.
