Heading off KUDZU?
I just moved to South Carolina from a kudzu-free state, but I've heard all about its invasive qualities. I live on a wooded lot with a forest on two sides. I see that some of the trees on the edge of the woods that border my property have kudzu growing on them. About one third of the trees are affected. I don't see kudzu growing on any of our trees yet, but I've heard that it can spread quickly.
Is there anything I can do to 'head it off'? Or should I just strip it from the tree trunks once a week to keep it from getting a toehold? Should I report it to the local DNR office, or is kudzu pretty common around here? I live in Anderson, not too far from Greenville.
