: Could you please give me information on the following list of trees? I understand that these are called invaders is it true? Are they messy? Thanks Mary
The other trees:
Mimosa can be messy, and is weak.
Locust has suckers as a real issue many feet from the main tree.
It drops blossoms for quite a while. And the tiny leaves could be a nuisance to some people. They are tiny, so they tend to cling to shoes and then fall as they dry out.
