Tree of Heaven and Catalpa

A tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima) stands along the Monon Trail between 10th and 16th streets. In the background a bit farther north is a catalpa tree. Nobody planted these trees, Ailanthus and Catalpa are pioneer species of forgotten urban land. Picture taken April 4, 2010.
