AILANTHUS GLANDULOSA.--Tree of Heaven. China, 1751. A handsome,

fast-growing tree, with large pinnate leaves that are often fully

three feet long, and terminal erect clusters of not very showy

greenish-white flowers that exhale a rather disagreeable odour. It is

one of the most distinct and imposing of pinnate-leaved trees, and

forms a neat specimen for the lawn or park. Light loam or a gravelly

subsoil suits it well.
