City proposes to triple invasive species removal budget 


London, England offers proposal to triple the budget for invasive plant removal. 

 Note well: The black cherry tree, one of the best trees for Kentucky, is invasive in Europe. It’s a good plant or a bad plant. It just depends on the continent. 

We need to not only curb our appetite for exotic plants. We need to take drastic measures to deal with the 3300 exotic plant species that are running rampant and devastating wildlife.

 The great news is that the solution lies in our back yards and local parks.
