It contains a chemical that kills many other plants living within its rooting zone. The leaves are compound and yellowish-green but turn yellow in the fall. Each leaflet is lanceolate, has a smooth upper surface, and is hairy underneath. The bark is light brown and is scaly, becoming darker and ridged with age. The flowers appear as catkins (male) and erect clusters (female). The female flowers give way to nuts encased in round, slightly hairy, green husks that mature to black.
