Description:

Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle, tree-of-heaven, is a species native to China and North Vietnam. It was first introduced into the United States in the 1700s and is now distributed and invasive throughout much of North America where it out-competes native vegetation. The invasiveness of tree-of-heaven is primarily attributed to the lack of natural enemies in North America, its aggressive invasion of newly disturbed areas, tolerance of extreme conditions, and allelopathic properties.
