I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

Super fast growing, the bark is pretty smooth, and these things grow very fast.  They pop up all over my property, many times right next to a building.  I can take more pictures if it helps.

Sure it isn't poison ivy? three leaves..strongly toothed.. fast growing in disturbed areas. Not sure, leaves can be highly variable. More pics always help. Smooth bark though?..

When doing a description of a plant you might want to say where you are, take pictures of the bark, more than one of te leaves, and one of the branching structure, an overview- sometimes overall plant shape and height help, and maybe one of the underside of the leaves. Acer negundo is a widespread native tree often found in riparian areas further west.

If you see samaras, the helicopters then it's a box elder (ashleaf maple) Acer negundo L.  I was wondering if there is anyway you can show me a picture of the bud.

If you like them should be easy to transplant.

Cheers

The new growth on the box elder is a bright green
 
If you are using a rototiller, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
