Worse than kudzu?

David Moorhead, a forester with the University of Georgia Extension Service, is quoted in the Washington Times, Miami Herald and Orlando Sentinel about Cogon grass, a hardy weed that has overwhelmed forests in Africa and Asia and has been recently found in the Southeast. “Kudzu is probably the thing most people think about when they think of an invasive species because it’s so visible. But cogon grass is much more expensive to control; it’s more persistent, and it spreads more rapidly,” said Moorhead.
