Thanks. I don't think I have ever heard or seen one.
Be thankful, they are complete trash...
Yep, and if you cut one down without killing the stump, they send up root suckers all over.

I have seen deer browse them tho, but, not preferred by any means.

I have to say, one of my best field-edge tree stands is in a group of Ailanthus ("tree of heaven")!! But other than that, I agree that its a useless and prolific invasive species. Since they're either dormant or headed that way now, I'd hold off on doing anything with them at this time. In the Spring, when they start pushing, do a circumferential basal spraying of the trunk with the herbicide, Pathfinder-II. I don't think its Restricted. I've used it and it works very well for permanent removal of Ailanthus.

I guess there is a difference in how each chemical is absorbed?

You have plenty of experience with the basal spray, so, it probably is best in summer.

Well, according to the info Magnus provided, now is not the time for chemical treatment.

That tree is a certainly a pain to control.
