    The somewhat invasive Princess Tree, or Empress/ Paulownia Tree grows at some places in our area, and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it? Have you ever seen or heard of it? Do deer browse this tree? 20200913_211402.jpg 20200913_211312.jpg

    Yes, I see them here. I’ve never seen one browsed. I’ve seen places in some other states when traveling where they looked to be invasive but not so much where I live.

    Doing some searching brought this up. I have this on several spots on my property and it shades out the ground quick. I'm getting rid of it. I think I have more of this than tree of heaven. My forester called it out specifically in my forest management plan.
