Subject: RE: BS: What tree is this, please?
Thanks, everybody!

I know about the invasive part, Bobert. I'm struggling with my conscience right now. On the one hand, I don't expect that I can single-handedly eradicate the Chinaberry tree from this area, no matter what I do, and I do enjoy having them in the yard. Plus, they're not choking out any other trees. They actually have quite a lot of competition. On the other hand, if I cut down the ones in our yard, that's a few less seeds for the birds to spread around, and I'm wondering if I could do something interesting with the wood, it being in the same family as mahogany and all. Hmmm... what to do, what to do...

By the way, we also have naturalized wisteria growing all over the same parts of our yard. Is naturalized wisteria considered a pest as well?
