Untitled[edit]

I redirected Popcorn tree to this article since there was no article on popcorn tree and they're the same things.

Can you do the same with chicken tree, this is a well-known name in southern Louisiana. It was given to the Tallow tree since chickens liked to sit in the tree. I see no reason why it should not be mentioned here. Stetsonblade 18:00, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

While bio-diesel is an alternative to conventional fossil fuels, its use does not reduce greenhouse gases. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.81.41.224 (talk) 00:51, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Some mistake here. Motor alcohol from corn does not reduce greenhouse gases. Bio-diesel usually does. Diference is that you get more power from the same amount of biomass, add to that that most bio-diesel do not need that much fertilizer and other farming chemicals. (A little digression: the energy in the farmwaste (mostly straw that is just a trouble and takes more energy when plowing) usually contains more energy than used in tthe farming for fuel, fertilizer and chemicals.) Some bio-diesel even grows where nothing else can grow. Seniorsag (talk) 13:27, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Some more information that could be added....[edit]

This page talks about how the chinese tallow tree is a invasive pest tree for those in the southern united states. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.197.2.145 (talk) 21:12, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Range and habitat[edit]

The "Range and habitat"section describes it United States habitat very well, but does not detail it's range in Asia. This is a major failing for this article, given the tree originates in Asia. We need someone with expertise on this tree to rectify this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.58.59.47 (talk) 21:17, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
