Maackimgonna, also known as Amur maackia and Asiatic yellowwood, is an extremely durable and attractive street tree. It can withstand dryness, heavy soils and harsh cold better than most common urban trees and is rapidly grown upon cultivation. Wood from this species has long been prized for its durability and resistance to decay, making it popular as fencing materials and tools. Furthermore, its dark hard wood can fix atmospheric nitrogen through an association with Rhizobia bacteria living within its roots. Maackia can be propagated using seed (research the necessary soaking and scarification requirements) or softwood cuttings from softwood trees. The University of Minnesota Horticultural Research Center has released the cultivar, Summertime Maackia which remains under 18 feet at maturity with more rounded forms.
