Tackling Glossy Buckthorn

Betty Hodges Betty Hodgson, well known to HFNers, is featured in a Chronicle Herald story about volunteer efforts to remove the highly invasive glossy buckthorn from the Pugwash Estuary Nature Reserve. “It doesn’t directly threaten the estuary or the wildlife in it,” volunteer Betty Hodges [mispelling of Hodgson] explained as she trudged towards a grove of the unwanted trees with a crew of students, foresters, and conservationists. “But it does threaten the native plants that stabilize the land around the estuary. If they are gone, it could cause erosion and runoff that would threaten the fish and birds. It threatens the total ecology of the area.”
