Occurrence remarks There were a lot of these trees planted many years ago from cuttings, particularly along the river banks to mitigate errosion. In recent years these trees have gained the capacity to produce viable seed and have therefore become a pest. Now listed as Weeds of National sinifigence (WONS) and efforts are being made to eradicate those in areas where they are causing concern.
