Ailanthus...not popular with neighbour.
Pest county, near Budapest, Hungary
An Ailanthus tree grew from nowhere in our garden last year. It was self seeded there somehow. I have not noticed any in nearby gardens. It is a common tree in the hedgerows around here. It has attractive leaves and I was happy to leave it. It is near our border fence and our neighbour says it is a bad tree and we need to remove it. I guess he is worried it will sucker into his garden. What is the official opinion of this tree? Why has is got a bad reputation? Locally it is known as the tree of heaven which doesn't sound that bad to me.
