  1. Luckily, there's not THAT MUCH bamboo statewide, but unfortunately that means not many of us have much experience with it. I'd say that guide from Clemson is pretty accurate (dig what you can, DON'T COMPOST, use herbicides), from what I know of bamboo issues, but perhaps @Phyllis Higman or @Drew Rayner have some other ideas, since we have the bamboo in West Michigan that we all saw at the field trip? Good luck, share what you learn!
  2. Treatment Contractors

    This thread is a good place to start:
  3. Identification help: Pokeweed / Knotweed

    Agree with CSK
  4. Nursery Suggestions

    ISN is working on a grant proposal to create a strategic plan for bringing our ground-breaking Go Beyond Beauty program state-wide, and we need input from businesses! We're currently working on getting the Michigan Nursery & Landscaper Association to come to the table, but it would be useful to have businesses from throughout the state interested. Could you help us out by suggesting some? Unsurprisingly, we have northwest lower Michigan covered, and I know of Van Atta's, Howe's, and Andy T's in mid-Michigan that I will be contacting. Where else should I go? Thanks in advance!
  5. Discussion: GMO corn as an invasive?

    They're not going to like this, but it's because it doesn't harm the economy (though arguments could be made), the environment (any more than any other corn monoculture, anyway), or human health (no, really, it doesn't). Really, it's not a very useful question that's just guaranteed to start an argument with no satisfactory conclusion.
