Re: Paulownia now cattails


They aren't too bad in big ponds here, but in drainage ditches, smaller water areas, etc they do tend to become an issue. I'd never thought about them being a problem until I saw a pond filled in as Donna described. Kinda stinks as I really like them.

We had them forever when I was a child. They never filled up any of the ponds or swamps we fished in. Maybe they are just bad for onramental ponds. They are not at all invasive around here.

Not sure anyone addressed the cattails! Mother nature uses them to level
out the earth? When they establish they catch and drop all debris possible
to fill in the waters and continue to do so while they spread to continue
their mission. Lovely for dry dry arrangements - bad for ponds!

Around here they take over- I mean to the point where
they have dried up small lakes. They totally engulf
the lake, the next year or so there is no room for
water anymore and it becomes a swamp- then before you
know it, someone is building a new subdivision on the
new found land... sigh.

In a pond like my mothers, it is not a natural pond-
so the roots will poke thru the liner and then we will
really have a mess on our hands...
