So are cottonwoods, or honeynlocusts or Kentucky Coffee trees. Hell, a mature bur oak will drop 250,000 acorns in a year
Yep. It's all about location. Don't put messy trees in an area that you want to keep squeaky clean unless you have the time to tidy up constantly.
We had several mature pepper trees (Schinus molle) at our old house. Many people regard them as trash trees because of their continual litter, and ability to reseed easily.
We kept them because they were fabulous shade trees in that hot dry climate and replanting a more preferred tree would have taken years to get decent shade from.
The litter was a pain, but it worked well with having two boys. Any time they got into a fight I'd hand them each a rake and tell them to get busy.
