THE CONSEQUENCES AND DAMAGE OF THESE PLANTS
Watch out for what these plants can do!
The Purple Loose - Strife- Takes over wet lands chocking many plants that live there.
Milfoil- Chokes the water and the water gets contaminated .
Autumn Olive- It re spouts after being burnt or cut and eats up the oxygen that other plants need.
Garlic Mustard- If it is eaten it will sicken the animal that has eaten it and that animal will die.
Japanese Barberry- It is sickly to birds if it is eaten and it takes over plant life in the forest.
Japanese Knot weed- Any animal that eats it will die and it will go under ground and wind around a trees root not allowing it to get water.
Oriental Bittersweet- It covers other plant life and chokes the life out of it by not allowing it to get sun, water, or oxygen.
