She does openly admit to banning people and censuring anything that goes against her, just like she did on the patch articles. I told her to stop using my picture, and she banned me, so there's probably hundreds of other people she has been banning as well. She really has no morals or respect for anyone else.

If you have any bamboo that needs removal please let me know and we can remove it all. Bamboo as agriculture and commercial components is very important economically. However, planting them close to flower gardens and plastic pools might not be a good idea. Its like planting willow trees or ivy's. It is not noxious and scientifically purifies the soil. Please advise if we can work something out with us to get rid of all of it for anyone who has problems with it?

Season Orris Ciechanowski I don't think it is ever good to plant this particular bamboo in a non-native country off of a plantation. Neither does most of Asia. If you lived in Pittsburgh I would love to have you remove ALL OF IT never to be seen again. I have veggies and NATIVE PLANTS to plant...

Vincent Cruz Villanis Hi,
Yah over 5 million acres of bamboo was native to eastern U.S. how much bamboo do you have? I have family down there and am sure we can arrange something if its in a mass scale?

I'm not sure if she contacted patch, or someone reported her for spamming, but one of these articles has the comments closed. http://huntington.patch.com/articles/ba ... -town-hall
This is where she pretty much pissed me off when she attacks someone who actually knew what he was talking about.

Glad to see they came up with a reasonable solution! As a bamboo grower I know it’s not a “plant it and forget it” plant, and if it’s ignored for even a couple of years it can quickly become a big problem.
It’s not too difficult to keep it in check though — it requires yearly maintenance (cutting the rhizomes with a spade to keep it from spreading) that must be done every single year.
Many of us find it to be worth the effort though, and applaud the Board’s decision.

Alan, I have to strongly disagree with you. You are one of the very few who even knows a barrier is needed. Most do not. Most of the yellow groove Phyllostachys is invading. Barriers fail fast. Even wikipedia states 40 and 60ml do not hold back a mature grove. The barrier must be installed to specification, or it will fail faster. What happens when you sell your home ? Where is everyone dumping the rhizomes. Any fragment is active and will start an infestation. These must be burned. It only takes one escaped rhizome to invade the neighborhood. This is noxious destructive invasive running bamboo. This is a highly unsuitable plant for a property line planting. When it invades, the horse is already out of the barn. Once it gets under structures, almost impossible to eradicate. So many towns have passed ordinances in the last few months, that I do believe Sag Harbor made a huge mistake, without doing enough research. When the grove is in year 15 to 20 good luck, dont say you were not warned. This invasive is being sold on ebay and craigslist, no barrier information…sorry Alan..when you are wrong you are wrong.
USDA writes Phyllostachys would be their worst if it produced seed. It rapidly forms mono-culture that completely excludes other plant species.South Carolina declares it a severe threat . It cannot even be shipped into Hawaii, nor planted in the ground in Tokyo, because it knows no property lines. It is highly noxious and destructive to gas lines, sewers, septics, foundations, pool, driveways. The evidence is everyplace online. Google :invasive bamboo ordinance, and read. All new. Alan, you are one in a million, and you are dead wrong. I strongly urge Sag Harbor to reaccess the damage and stigma to the towns land, as this is almost impossible to eradicate once established. It will escape into the towns infrastructure and forest , and wetlands. This is a new problem, and a very serious one. The exponential rate of growth is more aggressive each successive year, and is relentless on a mature grove.
