Pine Ridge Park

Sat, June 17, 2023, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon


We will cut down the patches of Japanese knotweed that are beginning to establish along Tom's Run. Our protocol is a two-step process. We cut the knotweed to the ground in June. At least six weeks later we return and spray the resprouted knotweed, which will only be one or two feet tall, with glyphosate herbicide. That late in the growing season, the plants' nutrients will be flowing back into its roots. The herbicide will be drawn into the knotweed roots and kill the plants.

While one group of volunteers is cutting knotweed, another group will pull out multiflora rose and bush honeysuckle.

We will meet at the parking lot by Pavilion 3.
