My wife and I moved back to the North Country in 2019, finding just the right place in Lancaster, NH. We are not new to the larger area. I have worked, lived and/or owned property in the Berlin/Gorham/Shelburn/Pinkham Notch area since the late 60s. Yes, I am that old!

Recently I learned about the invasive plant, Japanese knotweed, also known as Fallopia japonica, Reynoutria japonica (R. japonica), and Polygonum cuspidatum (P. cuspidatum). And then I learned there were members of the Conservation Commission in Lancaster, NH who were interested in ways to control this invasive species. So here we are, out identifying the locations of Japanese knotweed growth.

INaturalist was recommended as a means of cataloguing and sorting our observations of Japanese knotweed growth.

So, here we are. Logging in observations of Japanese knotweed growth in Lancaster, New Hampshire and environs.

Proudly a Knotweed Ninja, or Buster!
