Watch out for noxious weeds

August 6, 2013
By Hilary Smith (hsmith@TNC.org) , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

You may be familiar with poison ivy, the famous glossy, three-leaved plant known for igniting itchy, swollen skin irritations. A native of the Adirondacks, poison ivy is relatively limited in its distribution but is expected to be on the move as temperatures warm. Two other noxious plants that may be less familiar are giant hogweed and wild parsnip. They are not native to the Adirondacks and are becoming more widespread. They pack a punch. To avoid injury, watch out for these invasive plants that are harmful to human health.
