Tree-of-Heaven: Identification, Ecological Impacts, Mapping and Management

April 24, 2020
12:00 - 1:00 PM


Tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima) is an invasive species that has negative ecological impacts on our forests and is also the preferred tree of the invasive spotted lanternfly (SLF). Knowing how to identify and record locations of tree of heaven in iMapInvasives is a proactive practice that will help identify high priority areas to monitor for and implement management strategies to control anticipated SLF infestations. Another proactive practice landowners can engage in is removal of tree-of-heaven from their property, but effective management of this tree requires specific control practices. Learn more about all of these topics so you can help manage an invasive tree species and be an integral contributor of the early detection and rapid response to SLF.
