Description of specimen

Ivy is covering most of the trees along the stretch of Highway 20 just east of Newport proper

Commentary

English ivy is so widespread in this area control is not possible. Included with himalayan blackberry and scotch broom, we are not logging locations anymore. Treatment is on a case by case basis. We do encourage private landowners with these species to really try to eradicate them from their own properties though.
