A warning about Japanese Knotweed
Jul 24, 2016
This patch of Knotweed along Oyster Bay Road was chopped down by the roadside mowing contractor a few days ago. This should never be done - propagules of the highly invasive plant can be spread for miles by the mowing machine and even a tiny piece of stem can result in a new full grown plant. We spent two hours clearing up the mess they left behind and bagging up the thousands of pieces left by the mower. Please tell your municipality or Regional District not to allow roadside mowers anywhere near Japanese Knotweed - it makes the problem ten times worse!!
