The chinaberry tree is an invasive tree that was brought from China to give shade and to use for lumber. Due to the tree’s rapid growth and seed production, the chinaberry tree became invasive to Texas.

The tree’s leaves and berries are highly toxic to animals and outcompete the native vegetation for resources.

The chinaberry can be killed if cut down to ground level and applied immediately with an herbicide to the fresh cut. This research was done as my Eagle Scout project at Helton Nature Park and now the North Orchard is currently free of chinaberries, after more than 200 trees were removed.

We need the public to respond by not planting chinaberry trees and removing any existing trees they find. For more information, go to www.texasinvasives.org.

Brandon Fanick is an Eagle Scout and a senior at La Vernia High School. He has conducted his research at the Helton Nature Park in Wilson County.

How about a plan to rid the state of invasive liberals and their "it's for your own good" programs.

Great job on the Chinaberry trees. If you don't believe how fast these trees spread just go to any river, creek or stream and you will see them everywhere.
