Jen - if you had to guess, what % of the knotweed patches out there were established by seed? I am guessing it's a really low number (10% or less).

you may be getting bombed, That's what happened to a zoom meeting on Saturday. Obsenities took over.

FYI: Tree-of-heaven leaves also give off an unpleasant smell when you scrunch then up and sniff them. Sumac leaves do not have an unpleasant smell.

Jen - is there an easy way to distinguish Giant Hogweed from its native relative Cow Parsnip (other than size)?
Russ Cohen

Oh - you just said...

FYI - re Porcelain Berry, which Jen just mentioned - that is also an invasive species.

I have heard that some ash species, and/or individual ash trees, are showing some resistance to the EAB (they are not being killed). Is that right? If so, is any effort underway to save (or even breed) these resistant trees?

Are you following and taking action on fragmites?

For Buckthorn plants that are 3/4" or smaller in diameter they pull up easily with a weed wrench.

general question. I can understand why some leaf eating insects have evolved to live on single species, but what is it about the wood of ash tree that is the only wood of interest to the EAB?
