Derry conservation officials working to knock out knotweed
Commission members are mapping out where the bamboo-like plant is growing in Derry and using a grid method to chart its progress. Chairwoman Margret Ives updated the members on the ongoing “knotweed attack” during a meeting last week.
After it is cut, Japanese knotweed shouldn’t be allowed to remain on the lawn. Ives said merely cutting the plant isn’t enough because it can still spread.
Residents who want more information on Japanese knotweed can contact Doug Cygan, an invasive species coordinator and entomologist for the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture. Cygan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
