Ailanthus altissima

Ailanthus altissima also known as the Tree of  Heaven, is officially the first tree up for discussion in my blog, and there is so much to say.

Aislantus altissima

Aislantus altissima

I always say that it was brought here by the Victorians; I like the sound of that.

I do know that they can be coppiced and then repeatedly used for a dramatic effect in the summer landscape. And please do not try this near buildings.

They grow very tall, very fast, and that is why I love them.

If you have access to land, and there is space, plant one and watch it grow without interference. It could certainly  be a good experience for you.
