The World Conservation Union has included this species in their list of 100 of the world's worst invasive species, one of only 32 terrestrial species so singled out. [HYPERLINK@www.k-state.edu]

Within its native range (the western Mediterranean basin), it's among the most economically important of trees.

In South Africa, it has been known to invade and replace extensive areas of vital fynbos habitat for the last 150 years.

It's naturalized in South Carolina, Oregon, and Hawaii.
