I'm really fighting buckthorn along the edge of the woods. It totally blocks anything else from getting a foot hold. And it is the most prolific thing imaginable spawning piles of black berries each fall that all germinate. I don't know how many hours I've spent sitting in the mulch pulling little seedlings out. The UW arboretum says the only way to deal with them is to burn them out, so I got an acetylene torch and tried that - one by one, but that didn't even work...am I desperate or what? I hear some nurseries still sell them!! Then there's the garlic mustard, but don't get me started...what's your worst invasive. Perhaps we can save each other from planting a monster.
