I have these trees in my backyard that are basically more like WEEDS
than trees. They seem to grow anywhere, and they grow tall. The trunks
or stalks of these trees get fairly thick but they are extremely easy
to cut through. The leaves leave a strong, peculier oder on your hands
I had a tree guy come to my house and he told me these were "Lanthis
trees". I looked all over the internet and found no mention of such
Please help me identify these trees. Thanks.
YEP, that's the one. Thank you. I'm wondering if I should irradicate
these trees from my yard? I already had to get TWO of them cut out that
were growing out of the side of my house (down where the basement
windows, below ground level, were).
And is it my imagination? Or do these trees seem to "latch on" to other
plants, trees, and rose bushes, growing right next to them and sapping
What are your suggestions on how to deal with these plants? Thanks.
The Ailanthus altissima will just about take over any area where it is
allowed to grow. Quite a noxious invader in all parts of the US.
Roundup is effective against ailanthus. Just spray it on as many
leaves as possible. Killing it before removing it is better than
cutting the trunks and leaving live roots in the ground.
