We’re fighting an infestation of this tree on our property in Montgomery. Chinese Tallow AKA “Popcorn” tree and it seems that each bloom is an invasive seed. Get rid of it asap or your entire neighborhood will be over-run.
We had several Chinese tallow trees in our subdivision near Charleston. I witnessed many bluebirds feasting on the seeds.
I know they are invasive trees. Many arrangements of these seed pods can be purchased at the open market in downtown Charleston.
