Abstract

Although commonly perceived as an urban and roadside problem, Ailanthus altissima is a highly invasive non-native tree that is present in many forested landscapes in the eastern U.S. It has been a persistent feature of eastern U.S. landscapes since its introduction to North America as an ornamental shade tree in Philadelphia in 1784.
