Weed Tree Identification Celine MicroA weed tree is any species or variety that has a high seed germination rate, grows Celine Trapeze rapidly, and colonizes areas quickly, outcompeting other tree species. Often these trees are nonnative species that only turn "weedy" when they are grown outside of their native ranges. Weed trees generally start out as ornamentals, grown specifically for their toughness and fast growth. They establish readily and, if left unchecked, create a nearmonoculture in specific areas, endangering less prolific species and leaving large areas vulnerable to tree canopy destruction in the event that speciesspecific pests or pathogens are introduced.
Norway maple (Acer plantanoides) was originally planted as a street or park tree. After Dutch elm disease decimated the country's elms in the 1960s and '70s, these maples were often planted as replacement trees. They are adaptable, shade Celine Mini Tie Bag tolerant and grow to an impressive size 40 to 50 feet tall. The winged seeds spread far and wide, Celine Mini Luggage Handbagallowing Norway maple to colonize wooded areas and hedgerows. The lobed leaves resemble those of other maple species, but have a milky sap when veins are opened. Unlike some other maples, Norway leaves turn yellow in the fall and persist.
White or common mulberry (Morus alba) is native to China. The leaves are alternate on the stems and can be smooth or lobed in shape. The orangebrown to brown bark exudes a white juice if nicked in warm weather. The catkinlike flowers are yellowgreen, and the fruit can be white, pink or redpurple. Birds eat the sweet, edible berries and disperse them widely. The tree is considered a weed because it adapts and flourishes under a wide range of conditions, grows fast and even sprouts anew from the trunks Celine Cabas Bag and roots of felled specimens.
The most recognizable features of black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) are the fragrant, white flowers, borne in 4 to 8inchlong, pendulous clusters in late spring. The trees can grow 30 to 50 feet Celine Classic Boxtall with a narrow crown. The pinnate or feathery leaves are arranged in clusters of seven to 19 ovalshape leaflets. Like most other weed trees, black locust is adaptable to a variety of conditions. It selfseeds readily, and the trees are often clustered in thickets in wooded areas. Black locust is an example of a native tree that has become invasive in Celine Bag many areas.
