    Pretty sure this is Pokeweed but just wanted to get a second opinion.
  11. Hi all, I received an e-mail from someone in the Kalamazoo area today regarding some glass like plants growing at their church along the river bank in the rocks. Wondering if anyone can tell what this could be and whether or not it is / can become a problem. She said the roots are like a fat rubber band. Update: It started growing on the north side of one building and has now jumped over to another area, probably 50-75 yards away. She keeps trying to kill it with Spectracide and some weed killer the church has but "it won’t quit!"

    Treatment Tracking Feedback

    Hi everyone, Looks like the treatment tracker map is getting used quite a bit from CISMAs all over the state! Now that you are utilizing the treatment tracker and are more familiar with it, I would like to ask all of you to please let us know either by posting here or sending me an e-mail, if you have any questions or comments/improvements. I know after the MISC field trip there had been some discussion about changing some of the verbiage for the "chemical name" to "pesticide" ? Thoughts? Thanks!
