Re: Invasive Plant
I can't speak for your particular plant, but here in the Pacific Northwest we are having problems with a bamboo-like invasive, non-native species called Japanese Knotweed. It's especially problematic because it spreads extremely easily through cuttings. That means that cutting it down or digging it out is not recommended because that will cause it to spread. The ONLY suitable means for controlling it is a systemic herbicide.
As a landowner, you are responsible for removing invasive and noxious weeds from your property. In some states and with some weeds, you can be cited for failure to remove them.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
