There are several campaigns happening around the state concerning eradication of invasive non-native plants. My request is that people please be understanding and patient with these campaigns.
Some people have had these invasive plants in their yard for a while and like having them there. But, as a whole these plants can cause many more problems than they help.
Just a few of these plants are Chinese Tallow and Silk Mimosa.
All one has to do is know a little bit of history of Texas to get an idea of what invasive plants can do. A classic example, in the area that I live is the 'chinaberry'. A relatively short time ago, about 45-50 years ago, one could walk through our woods looking at all of the beautiful oaks and such. NOW, is a whole different story. You have to have a sharp tool like machette to hack your way through like being in a asian jungle.
So, to sum up, ladies and gentlemen, please be knowledgable about what you plant.
Thanks, so much, for your help.
