...That's pretty much what some nurseries are going to have to do as invasive plants that they sell are placed on "banned" lists. As reported by the Concord Monitor, New Hampshire nurseries are already having a hard time getting rid of their Norway maple (Acer platanoides) stock, as the public gets educated about what will be illegal to sell or propagate by 2007. Even nurseries in neighboring states are hesitating to take the plants, worried that their own states will implement similar bans.
It would have been good for the state to implement an invasives "buyback" program to help out the nurseries, but that seems unlikely as a state worker estimates that at least half of them are still buying or actively cultivating the soon-to-be-banned plants (also on the prohibited list: burning bush (Euonymus alatus) and Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii).)! Let's hope we don't see these three species selling at rock bottom prices next summer.
