RULES OF ENGAGEMENT In the Great Roanoke Park Honeysuckle War
- Groups regularly meet Saturday mornings to engage in organized bushwhacking, from 8 or 9 am to lunch.
- Please know however, the Honeysuckle fight is NOT an invitational event:
- Restless citizens may engage at will going alone or meet a couple of pals for bushwhacking therapy in Roanoke Park. (If you're using a chain-saw, please have a buddy for safety.)
- Bush whackers get bragging rights to the beauty they create.
Specialized Skills sought:
- Seeking heavy-handed pruning skills for initial contacts with honeysuckle.
- Herbicide applicators (with gloves) need to follow closely behind.
- Contact Kite Singleton or Scott Burnett for Tordon herbicide which needs to be applied to fresh cuts within minutes. (Information about the Tordon herbicide.)
- Brush pullers to drag the cut brush close to the curb for pick up by parks department.
- Sharp-eyed clean up specialists armed only with a trash bag. Along your walks pick up some now visible trash within the newly trimmed zones.
