Currently in process of downloading photos from woodlot exploration with explanations from watershed expert.
To the right are two photos of Japanese Barberry.
It is invasive and attracts ticks. If replacing, have a plan to put something in its place. One suggestion is Winterberry.
This is burning bush. Was in the woodlot and along the lawn fence. Need to get rid of it as it is invasive.
These Bittersweet Vines wrap around and kill the trees. Cut the vine at about one foot off the ground and that will kill the top part. May or may not need to paint a herbicide onto it.
This picture of Witch Hazel plant is not from our property. I did not take a picture but we did have Witch Hazel bushes. These are native and a good understory plant.
Wineberry is invasive. Since we don't have a lot on the lot it would be easy to cut down. The recently downed tree opened up the canopy so get rid of it right away.
Extensive areas of Japanese Stiltgrass ground cover. Especially near Clove Creek. It is keeping the soil from eroding and loose sediment flowing into the creek. However it is invasive. If we remove it we need to replace with trees and shrubs that do well in a flood plain like Sycamore trees, Willows, some Maples do ok.
