Naturalization of Russian-Olive in the Western United States
Abstract:Since its introduction into the United States, Russian-olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia) has escaped cultivation at many locations. This exotic tree is now present in every western state, especially within riparian zones. The species has high value for wildlife, but can interfere with agricultural practices and has the potential to displace native riparian trees. West. J. Appl. For. 1:65-69, July 1986.
