DescriptionChinese tallow (Triadica sebifera) is a nonnative invasive species with high fecundity rates that has naturalized from the coastal prairies of east Texas along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts as far north as North Carolina. Population differences were computed for two forest inventory periods (mid-1990s and late 2000s) in Louisiana, east Texas, and Mississippi using data collected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Southern Research Station, Forest Inventory and Analysis Program. Substantial population expansions of Chinese tallow were noted in all three States.
