Re: invasives

We had only the barest slowdown after 9/11. Long may yours last.

Yep we're in the middle of explosive suburbia too, although they've
slowed down a lot with the collapse of the housing bubble. It just makes
me so mad to go hiking in the hills and see what used to be a thriving
natural habitat scraped bare. They took the hills so they could charge
more for "view lots" despite the thousands of acres of flat desert
growing nothing but saltbush (and despite the fact that it USED to be
part of a city natural habitat area...the city rolled over and gave them
the land...) But now there's no market. They put plastic down over some
of the slopes to prevent erosion, very attractive. And there it all
sits, scraped bare and covered with plastic, left to rot until housing
prices pick up again. Arrrgh.
