I'll try to find out what they are, the neighbors don't know. Last fall I
cut several feet off the top and they have already grown taller than they
were when I cut them. Whatever they are, they are voracious growers. I
broke a twig off and stuck it in a pot, it grew a root within a week.
I don't get the analogy, but I'll take your word for it.
deciduous, but evergreen in this zone (7-8)
I don't remember.
mature leaves are 2.5" long, they are compound leaves, have a small
stem and grow opposite on the main stem
The simple identification book I have identified them as white ash, but
they are not ash trees.
I'm wondering if it is a variety of privet. The characteristics seem to
match and they appear similiar at a glance.
I don't think I could kill these things without the use of poison. They
grow practically year round, probably a few inches a month and probably
2 feet a month in spring and fall.
I might just let them go... really, how big could they get? If they are
privets they would be nearly full grown.
