Yesterday we were inspecting our property and discovered a new invasive plant– Japanese Climbing Fern. It is a highly invasive non-native plant infesting lands in most of the southeastern U.S. It grows in moist or dry woods along ditches and rivers. Japanese climbing fern climbs over shrubs and into the tops of trees where its dense canopies shade out and eliminate the vegetation below. It was likely introduced into the U.S. around the 1930’s as an ornamental plant. We will plan to spray with glysophate and document. See lind to publication and picture.
