Restoration at Carpenter Farm Park —Huntington, NY
2022 Progress Report
Several acres were recently discovered at Carpenter Farm Park that are closed to the public and which have been invaded by vines, covering trees and shrubs, pulling them down and killing many. The main culprit is porcelain-berry. (Hover over photos for close-ups.)
The pictures above are samples of a significant porcelain-berry invasion covering several acres, but the vines are also spreading throughout the rest of the park and in the local community. Starting July 4, 2022, I hand pulled and cut the vines on average of 4 hours/day, weather permitting.
