[The susceptibility of street trees to salt pollution.]. Most leaflets have one to three coarse teeth near their base. The leaves can be used as a fodder for silkworms. Zelenin AV, 1976. Colonization by the tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima) in the French mediterranean region (Bas-Languedoc), and its phytosociological characteristics. It was reported to be already widespread and naturalized in Tennessee in the late 1800s (SE-EPPC, 2002) and in some parts of the USA it is so well established that it appears to be a part of the native flora (Schopmeyer, 1974). 46 phytophagous arthropods, 16 fungi, and one potyvirus were reported attacking Ailanthus altissima in China, some apparently causing significant damage (Ding et al., 2006). Preferred mean annual temperature is 7-18°C, and it can also tolerate heavy frosts, and survive absolute minimum temperatures as low as -35°C.

Its rapid growth rate and ability to grow in harsh conditions with little care made this tree a popular horticultural plant relatively quickly in the east. in Western Himalayas. Swingle. It has a very long compound leaf, with many leaflets. However, the Invaders Database System (Rice, 2002) reports that it is not noxious in the five northwest states and that it is not listed on the US federal noxious weed list. http://www.dcr.state.va.us/dnh/fsaial.pdf. In India the wood is considered to be perishable and subject to staining. Intentional introduction has been the common means of long distance dispersal, introduced to North America, Europe and Australasia for timber, shade and urban amenity plantings. In the USA, from Massachusetts to Texas, A. altissima forms dense thickets that displace native vegetation, and is especially invasive along stream banks in the west (Westbrooks, 1998). Also escaped in Europe. Woody Flora of Taiwan. In Victoria, it is designated a regionally controlled weed under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 (CaLP Act), a category W2/W3 weed under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993 (NWA) in New South Wales, in Western Australia it is prohibited until assessed, and it is a declared weed in other states and territories (Anon., 1998).

This species is able to grow in highly urbanized environments and is a highly invasive species in natural areas. Two important insect pests recorded for A. altissima are Eligma narcissus and Lycorma delicatula. (1993) studied 49 provenances from 11 regions of the north Yangtze river valley, China, and found considerable variation in seed colour, size weight and thickness of samaras among provenances, and a weak correlation between seed weight and seedling growth and latitude. Singh R P, Gupta M K, Prakash Chand, 1992. Journal of Vegetation Science, 6(6):853-856; 30 ref. Ailanthus altissima. Ailanthus altissima is commonly found in urban areas, particularly on disturbed sites such as waste land and transportation net-works, e.g. Ailanthus altissima. However, there was no evidence of inbreeding depression in the American seedlings and they appeared to be as genetically variable as the Chinese seedlings. Singh RP, Gupta MK, Prakash Chand, Chand P, 1992. In India, it is considered to be a poor quality match wood. SE-EPPC, 2002. Melbourne, Australia: Inkata Press, 698 pp. A. altissima has good drought resistance as it can reduce transpiration at the hottest point of the day, and a ring-porous wood structure which permits rapid transfer of water from the roots to the leaves, both of which have contributed to its success in mediterranean regions (Lepart et al., 1991).Reproductive Biology Ecology of the invasive species Ailanthus altissima (Mill.)
