One of my Dad's favorite trees . They aren't invasive and make a nice "specimen" tree in the landscape . Gonna try using them for bonsai this next year . I have a lot of seeds available so PM me your addy if you're interested .

It's an invasive species and I despised the ones I had at my old house

They are invasive and they spread like wildfire, I am trying to rid my yard of them. They aren't very hearty and fall easily. Their fruit is poisonous to children and pets.


Mama wants to change that Nashville sound, but they're never gonna let her.

I guess my definition of "invasive" differs. They don't spread out from the roots like locusts or silver maples (poplars) . I'm sure they'll spread from seed much like redbuds and mimosas do but a few shots of Roundup will take care of that . Dad's tree is ~ 20 and shows no sign of weakness or saplings coming up in the yard .

Just an offer for seeds ; no biggie . rolleyes

Best tree ever to make a slingshot handle and always plenty of ammo just for the picking.


From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
