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)
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)
- Added new content
- Previous article was missing specific information on where else the plant was introduced besides the U.S. as well as details on how it is an invasive species, so I added information to both the “Range and Habitat” and “Invasive Species” sections.
- Added Wikipedia and scientific article to reference new content
- The new content I added in those sections also have links to other Wikipedia articles as well as two scientific articles I found in researching
- Reworded previous article for improved readability and fluidity
- I reworded some of the previous sentences so they would blend better with my added information and read well.
Some more information that could be added....
Range and habitat
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 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:17, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
