Fallopia japonica, an invasive species is prevalent in Kalamazoo
County. It spreads easily and seems to be incredibly indestructable. The City of Kalamazoo hired Hannah Hudson last summer as the tall grass and weeds inspector. She has a background in natural resources, but had never heard of Japanese knotweed. She quickly learned its monstrous ways. More information is available about this invasive species in our area by going to this local website.
