Invasive tree or not?

Asked March 31, 2019, 2:37 PM EDT

I'm looking for some info on the snakewood tree or acacia xiphophylla in the family Fabaceae. My husband picked up some seeds somewhere and they have germinated but we read it's an invasive species. We don't want to plant them only to find they're a nuisance. They make for very pretty wood. I've checked with Rutgers NJAES with no results. We live in NJ. It's been several days since I asked this question(10 days). Thanks
