Mile-a-minute vine is well known and well established in our region yet there is a lot we can still do to manage the spread. Our Mile-a-minute Intern, Alyssa Coleman has been gathering information on new sightings in Gardiner, Lagrangeville, and Woodstock New York and evaluating the potential for management at each site. In Woodstock, we are happy to say that over 350 plants were removed thanks to the help of volunteers and Trillium Invasive Species Management. In Lagrangeville and Gardiner we hope to work with landowners to treat these sites in the coming seasons.
Trillium Invasive Species Management has been awarded a contract from New York State to control Kudzu (Pueraria spp.) in our region. Kudzu is listed as a Tier 2 Emerging Invasive with somehwat established populations in Westchester County and isolated populations in Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster and Rockland Counties.
