I live in southern Ohio. I have had these trees in 2 locations, where I used to live & where I am now. They did well in the last place, but moved here only 30 miles north & they die back every winter. They are nice trees, especially for a yard, nice shade fast, if it fell it might dent your gutter, but you can lift a log by yourself. The leaves are fodder for livestock, the flowers make a tea for people.
The wood I understand is expensive. It is very soft but with few defects. I heard it is used for piano keys & other instruments, but I don't know if any of it is true.
They can be grown to harvest size, cut, sold, & then just let them come up again out of the main root, cut back all but one for a new tree trunk, harvest again, start over. I heard there are trees in China 300 years old that have been harvested every few years, have not confirmed that, but I have harvested the same tree on the same stump twice & it came back for me.
I don't like heavy tress for the yard for safety reasons, & consider these ideal, also like mimosa for the yard as they grow fast & aren't heavy either. Why plant a 20 ton tree next to your house that might fall on it? Both of those grow fast, make shade, & are light weight. The mimosa in fall doesn't require raking the yard.
Hope this helps!
