Carol - If its Chinaberry, try to eradicate it. Don't feel bad about cutting it down if you want to do something with the wood. I think you have to poison the stump to keep it from growing back. The other thing you can do to control the spread of it is remove the saplings by the roots.
Chinaberry, like other invasive species, chokes out the natural flora. When the natural flora is endangered, so is the fauna. I doubt if you can single-handedly correct the damage that has been done soooooooo........
enjoy the beauty of the Chinaberry. Thats why it was introduced in the first place (although the seeds are toxic).
