Usage [2]  This species is often used in south-western N. America as a vigorous disease-resistant and drought tolerant rootstock for J. regia; A black dye is obtained from the seed husks; Plants produce chemicals which can inhibit the growth of other plants. These chemicals are dissolved out of the leaves when it rains and are washed down to the ground below, reducing the growth of plants under the tree; The roots of many members of this genus produce substances that are toxic to many plant species, especially apples (Malus species), members of the Ericaceae, Potentilla spp and the white pines (certain Pinus spp.); Wood - heavy, hard, rather coarse grained; A valuable timber, the tree is occasionally cultivated for its wood;
