    I live in La Junta Colorado and they are scraping the edge of the Arkansas River here to rid it of the noxious plant. However they are also ruining the Wildlife Habitat there. Deer, Racoons, Rabbits, Blue Heron, Fox, just to name a few of the Animals and birds that are being displaced. I am wondering if there is not a better way. Please advise. I would appreciate it very much.

      Claudia,

      Yeah, that’s the paradox. So far the most effective methods involve cutting and herbicides. Pretty destructive overall. If it’s any consolation we’re only able to deal with a small area of the infestation. Root for the Tamarisk leaf beetle, the goats and camels.
