Please help identify. It’s spreading and taking over
Please see attached pictures. This plant is taking over a creek and the wetlands surrounding it; choking out everything else. If you could assist me in identifying it as well as the best, safest way to eliminate it I’d appreciate. It’s too extensive to remove it all by hand
Marion County Oregon
Glenn, thank you very much! I don't want to remove all of it, but it some places it's all there is for 30-40 feet. We're hoping for a little more variety around the spring/creek on our property. It's also blocking the creek in places and that I'll definitely remove by hand.
