Letter to the Editor: Do not plant autumn olive


I urge people to ignore the Home and Garden Section column by Lee Reich on page B4 of the Nov. 20 issue. Do not plant autumn olive.

The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation lists it as a highly invasive species. It will take over a field, displacing native species.

Migrating birds will eat the berries, but they do not offer the nutrition that native plant fruits do. So do not plant it, and if you have it on your property, eradicate it.

Richard Stromberg, Front Royal
