Weeding out invasive species topic of Ingomar Garden Club’s upcoming program

Tony LaRussa

Invasive plant species such as Ailanthus altissima, or the Tree of Life, grow throughout Pennsylvania. Introduced from China as an ornamental, the tree produces chemicals in its roots that prevent other plants from growing nearby. The Ingomar Garden Club will host a program on Aug. 7, 2019 about how to deal with invasive plants.

Gardeners interested in learning more about how to control the spread of invasive plants are invited to attend an Aug. 7 program sponsored by the Ingomar Garden Club.

The club’s business meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. followed by lunch. The program titled “Invasive Species Not to Share” will start at 12:15.

The club meets at St. John’s Church, 311 Cumberland Road, McCandless.

Prospective members are invited to attend the free program.

More information about the club’s activities is available online.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
