Least wanted: an intruder among us
Ailanthus seeds Web
An example of the Ailanthus seeds and leaves, which are toothed instead of smooth like the leaves of other, similar trees. Crushing the leaves produces a rotten aroma.
I do not consider myself an alarmist nor do I normally get overly excited about things, but there is definitely cause for concern regarding a recent find in town. In late May, I performed a residential tree check in the Kendall Lake area. As a general rule, I do my best not only to look at the tree of concern but also to walk the property to make sure other trees are OK as well.
