VPR News: Green Mountain National Forest Looks To Get Rid Of Invasives
excerpt from above:
Quote:
(Sneyd) The U.S. Forest Service has made it a priority all over the country to get rid of plants that wouldn't naturally be found in the national forests.

Jay Strand is an environmental coordinator with the Green Mountain National Forest. He says non-native plants are a huge problem.
(Strand) "Nationally, it's one of the four major threats to the natural diversity of our ecosystems."

(Sneyd) So the Green Mountain forest has developed a plan to do away with wild chervil, Japanese knotweed, and other plants that you wouldn't normally find in the Vermont woods...
