excerpt from:
Quote:
IRONTON – Do you have unwanted brush on your wooded land and want to do something about it?

How about clearing it out and planting oak trees in its place? Well, if a view of mighty oaks fits your green thumb like a glove then the Ohio Division of Forestry wants to help.

Backed with nearly $1 million in federal landowner assistance, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources is able to provide assistance funds and technical advice to woodland owners interested in controlling invasive species and brush on their property.

Twenty-two counties in central and southeastern Ohio, including Lawrence, Jackson and Scioto counties, are eligible for funding. Only property owners of five or more acres of wooded land are eligible.
Why the sudden interest? "In 2009 alone, firefighters in Lawrence County have responded to nearly 100 brush fires, many of them caused fueled by overgrown weeds and honeysuckle." They cited Tree of Heaven as being a weed species.

Those interested should call (740) 589-9914
or email InvasiveSpeciesForester@dnr.state.oh.us
