    Hemlock another tree to disappear from an invasive bug/virus/bacteria….
    these issues need to be dealt with at federal level..all the importation is not controlled or sterilized at sea ports or airports. how many billions in expenses and losses does it take to figure out that something is broken????

    elms, chestnuts, black walnuts, butternuts, poison parnsnip, hog weed, japanese barberry, japanese honey suckle, to name only a tiny few of invasive issues.
