Meeting Minutes

Notes from the January meeting...Rex Miller, owner of Agri-Tech discussed principles and practices of roadside spray programs. General strategies for maintaining roadways in the woods were discussed including the importance and economics of keeping seldom used spur roads open. Rex discussed the importance of remaining vigilant to the threat of invasive species especially gorse, scotch broom, and various biennials including knapweed. Much of our forested areas are free of these pests for now but once they are established they become a serious impediment to management. Controlling invasive is an important part of being a good neighbor and Rex pointed out that small famers can sometimes be ill-equipped to deal with infestations. Rex cited success in the control of Japanese knotweed in the Coos watershed but fears that many other watersheds statewide including the Coquille might be too far gone to fully control infestations. He discussed specific prescriptions that have worked for knotweeds as well as several other invasive species. Rex can be reached at 541-269-1971.
