Ailanthus altissima, this is the botanical name of a tree.
Also called "Tree of heaven" -
(Tree of Heaven or Ailanthus) is a member of the quassia family, Simaroubaceae,
and native to northeast and central China
1) Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A web site called PCA Alien Plant Working Group does a page giving
description of the plant, its distribution and the problems it causes,
plus detailed information on management techniques.
2) Tree-of-Heaven management techniques (Ailanthus altissima)
My advice to control this thing is to rob it of sunlight and to go after the trees with female flowers. Other plants will eventialy learn to cohabitate and there by compete with the tree.
USDA "Invasive Species" .gov provides information and resources
for invasive plant species as an educational informational tool.
Good list of links to government info.
3) (Ailanthus altissima)
A rapidly growing small tree but can reach up to 80 feet has pinnately compound leaves.
Very good pictures for identification here.
