Good resource for invasive species, diseases, pests - FYI
« on: July 14, 2018, 08:51:24 PM »
I just came across this site:  which may be of use or interest to many of you.  It is used to report and track issues with both trees and shrubs, and has good info on pests and diseases.  It is also used to track and show the distribution throughout the country.

It seems my roses have become infected with rose rosette disease, which is pretty nasty.  That's what led me to this site.

On another note, there have been some issues lately in northern va where people have come in contact with the GIANT HOGWEED plant.  It can cause second and third degree burns if you get the sap on you.  Never heard of it until I read an article in the paper recently .  It's worth knowing about, and especially worth finding out if it's in your area.  The amazing thing about the ones in northern va - they were planted intentionally. :o
