That all depends on one's outlook.  They are EXTREMELY invasive and have
become serious problems.  Since the #2 threat to native species is
invasive exotics (second only to habitat destruction in the USA), I am
not a fan.  Unfortunately, they're being heralded as fantastic trees due
to quick growth.  They produce ungodly numbers of seeds which are widely
dispersed.  This is why they're impossible to control.
