Q:  Is there anything I can do about my neighbor who has an invasive tree in her yard?

A:  Aside for letting her know the tree is on the Florida Exotic Plant Pest Council (FLEPPC) list, not really.  It is on her property and most likely it came up as a volunteer.  I have attached the FLEPPC list for you to look over.  We should all be good stewards of the land and do the best we can to safeguard the native wildlife in our area. One way of doing that is to keep the invasive plants out of our own landscapes and attend local clean-ups for ridding invasive plants when possible. This group looks at the plants which cause the most ecological damage to our native wildlife areas.
