Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)

Tinmouth, Vermont 05773, United States

On this point of interest you will find an overwhelming amount of Japanese Honeysuckle (hopefully much less after we treated the area). This species is very invasive and can really grow anywhere it wants to. It flourishes in canopy openings, however can stay continuous throughout the understory of hardwood or mixed decidious forests. The only time I see this species suffer is under dense conifer forests. I incorperated this species into the tour because it is one that you see in peoples gardens all the time and they have no idea how invasive it truly is. To get to this point, its a simple walk from point 10. This picture was taken on the same day as point 10 where I did not have my dendrology card, however I used my thumbs down as a sign to show it was me (thumbs down because it's a bad plant).
