Where did all the pesky plants go?

October 2, 2012
Guest essay by BRENDAN QUIRION - Terrestrial Invasive Species Project Coordinator , Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program

Have you noticed something missing in the Adirondacks? Where invasive common reed grass or Japanese knotweed once towered, in many places, they are disappearing. Maybe you noticed a peculiar road work sign that read "Invasive Species Management Crew Ahead," or listened to a news broadcast warning about giant hogweed, a dangerous plant that can burn your skin. If so, welcome to my world, the world of the Terrestrial Invasive Species Project Coordinator for the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program.
