GLEBE TREES AND SHRUBS
Ailanthus (Tree-of-heaven) (Ailanthus altissima)
April 16, 2009. Queen Elizabeth Drive at about Linden Terrace,
by the canal.
Big leaf scars.
April 16, 2009. These "twigs" were littering the ground. They must be
previous-year leaf stems. All the same size, with one end flared. In fact,
it is probably a givaway as to the species of tree in Ottawa to see the ground
littered with these 3 foot "twigs". The tree seems to have no buds, and some
ends of twigs have a hanging ribbon.
