Common Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica)
Common buckthorn is an invasive shrub or tree originating in Eurasia that was introduced to the United States as an ornamental plant. It has many negative impacts on the environment including reducing light availability for native plants in forest understories and facilitating several other exotic species. Common buckthorn is often found in hedgerows and along forest edges.
Appearance: Shrub or small tree reaching up to 25 ft. in height. Crown irregularly shaped. Multiple stems at base.
Leaves: Oval or rounded with pointed tip. Margins finely-toothed. 3-5 pair upward-curved veins. Glossy and smooth. Hairless on top and bottom.
