    I just wonder how much interest that the Comptroller might have in looking at how DEC controls invasive species on the the land, for there are many out-of-control species that require additional attention and resources to combat, most generally for a maintenance aspect. Many populations are now so entrenched that eradication is not practical.

    it’s more of too little too late. soon we will have snakeheads eating lake champlain, lake george, hudson river….its always too late to do any good.

    japanese barberry invasive and yet sold in a lot of nurseries, japanese honeysuckle (never get rid of it now) hogweed, poison parsnip (never get rid of it). to name only a few plants, wanna talk invasive bugs? fungus? and how many trees are now basically extinct in america, chestnuts, elms, butternuts, black walnuts….track record on invasives is pretty bad.
