Underwood Conservation District is in the midst of a program to control Tree of Heaven in the area. District Director Tova Tillinghast says it can look nice, but it can also take over yards and lots very quickly sending out roots underground and taking over native habitats and riparian areas. Tree of Heaven is native to Asia, and is the preferred host of the Spotted Lanternfly, a piercing, sucking insect that could threatened local agricultural crops like cherries and grapes. A Zoom workshop on Tree of Heaven is planned for Thursday at 6 pm. For information on how to register, go to ucdwa.org.
