The Coastal Invasive Species Committee has had a very busy summer trying to control a variety of plants.
Don Hare says the Nanaimo program, called Knot on My Property, is in it’s 4th year and is quite a successful initiative….
Knotweed grows quickly and that growth can damage buildings and other infrastructure.
He says it can even alter waterways.
Hare says more people are also getting concerned about Giant Hogwood which can cause severe burns.
