Suzanne Thompson Nip the Knotweed
Putting Invasive Knotweed On a Starvation Diet

Suzanne Thompson didn’t wake up on the first day of 2020 thinking about Japanese knotweed. But, after all, it is 2020—and stranger things have happened than the turn Thompson took in May of this year, when she founded an all-volunteer campaign to fight that awful plant. Says Thompson, “We don’t spray it. We cut it.” Then she adds, “We starve it.”
