Comments: A fast growing tree that is subject to breakage during wind and ice storms. Will grow in a wide range of soil types fertile to poor ones, very moist to dry. Drought tolerant only when established. It produces many seed and if these survive to germinate and grow, this species can become a weedy pest.
