excerpt from above:
Quote:
The City of Portland wants to make sure that 15 species of invasive plants donít get a chance to become established in the city. Beginning July 1st, Portland property owners will be required to remove from their property any plant species on the cityís new "Required Eradication List". The rule is in 'City Code Title 29 Property Maintenance Regulations', and applies to both private and public landowners.

Is everyone asleep??? Didn't anyone catch this, "Required Eradication List"??? When we start seeing codes like that out west.... that means they'll be headed our way soon. We should all be doing a major league happy dance reading Portland's code. They mean business too, Portland Plant List. They're providing citizens with all the tools they need to identify these plants so they can destroy them.

Think about the relief we'd get if every citizen was required to eradicate JUST 10 invasive species. I can't imagine how much easier it would be for me cleaning up this mess I inherited from previous landowners if every time I removed a nasty another nasty from a neighbor's property wasn't taking root somewhere else over here. I LUST for a required eradication list for my county like what Portland has.
