Comments: Produces large quantities of seeds and spreads by these easily. Sometimes considered a trash tree, but does extremely well in a wide range of soil conditions from quite wet to dry. Grows very fast to make a shade tree in places were many other trees will not grow. Leaves look something like poison ivy.
