Tree of Heaven is popular for ornamental purposes

 Tree of Heaven is an invasive plant and poses a threat to humans and the environment. You can find it in many yards and gardens.

The bark is dark grey and smooth. The leaves are alternate, simple, rounded, approximately 3 inches long, with smooth edges and a pointy tip. They have tiny hairs on them and fall off during winter without ever-changing color.

It has various other names such as Ailanthus Silk Tree, Wild Simsim, Chinese Sumach, Indian Laurel, and False Acacia. It has been introduced across many parts, including Pakistan, South America, and the United States. Its pinnately compound leaves are 10 inches long with 5-9 leaflets, measuring around 1 inch long. The flowers are small, yellowish-green in color, and have a strong odor similar to garlic or onion.
