Along the same lines as what has been discussed here recently, the
forest service is working on restoring flood plains in some parts of
this state. They have been taken over by mustard, himalayan
blackberries and, worst of all, knotweed. It will take years just to
get rid of these, especially without using herbicides, but they will
then be replaced with native plants such as pussy willows.
