Source? likely to be reintroduced:
As this species has been so widely introduced, the main risk of invasion is likely to occur from already introduced plantings. It would be advisable to monitor for the early signs of invasive behaviour in areas where the climate and environmental conditions are similar to those of locations where M. azedarach has become invasive.
Can grow in dense thickets, restricting the growth of native vegetation. Widely introduced as an ornamental.
