A tree with stout branching and a robust look. When the maximum height of 25 m has been attained, the tree has a spread of circa 15 m. Especially in its early years the growth is strong. The leaf is odd-pinnate, but often the tip leaf is absent, which makes it pinnate. The maximum length is 60 cm and it consists of 12 to 25 leaflets and appears late in spring. When bruised it spreads an unpleasant odour. The unisexual, green white flowers appear in large panicles and are followed by winged fruits (keys) that turn from light green to pink red.
