Stewardship in the wake of Irene

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

The flood waters may have receded, but they’ve left a tide of Japanese Knotweed stems in their wake.  Because it is able to grow from any stem node, identifying and removing early shoots of Japanese Knotweed may be the best way to steward our river banks in early 2012.  Learn to identify the young shoots, and where possible, hand pull them often before they become a persistent problem.  This spring we have the window of an opportunity to make real a difference in stewarding our river banks!  Check out vtinvasives.org for more info.
