Trail crew is back

Spring is finally arriving, and this weekend the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park trail crew started up again. I spent several hours Saturday uprooting invasive wineberry. This is a good time of year to do it, since the plants don't have any leaves yet. It's easy to spot the wineberry, which is a relative of the raspberry from Asia. Like kudzu, it was brought over to be ornamental, but it grew out of control.
