Break out your saw and pruners
Start targeting invasive plants before the spring thaw!
Now is a great time to cut down vines that are growing on trees. Even decorative vines can grow too large for the good of a tree or too heavy for a trellis to support.
If you have any invasive plants, such as oriental bittersweet, Japanese honeysuckle or mile-a-minute vine near you, cut them down and bag them for the trash; never compost these major horticultural felons.
For more information, visit the MA Invasive Plant page or Mass Audubon's Invasive Plant list which includes common names and photos.
