Does anyone know if the Brazilian pepper backbuds easily (or at all)?

What we call Brazilian Pepper is an invasive weed that will grow from any stump. It has red berries and compound leaves.

And it can give you a helluva rash too! My g-mother used to tell me to keep away from them when I was younger visiting in the FL Keys

Thanks all for the info everyone. I scored three trees recently that had to make way for a playground and since they are regarded as invaders here too, they were destined for the rubish heap - yay for me!

YES, please do post a few pics because I'm not sure how to deal with the compound leaves.

Thanks
Marco

For those interested, it backbuds everywhere, non stop and within 2 weeks it looked like a bush! As a precaution, I left the top leaf.
