"Our environment reporter jacob fence and spent some time with buff is he catalogued the different species of vines present on every single city block into coma park all the invasive vines threatening the five thousand trees he counted as affected are so threatened.

Woody stems that you know about forty to fifty feet high a tree burdened with all that extra weight can easily topple in a storm about says. That's just one way. Invasive vines can kill a tree even towering century old one there are other ways to besides sheer weight some invasive vines actually strangle the trees by by gurgling the trunks and cutting off the resources to the tree other vines on will block sunlight from the tree and so it'll be competition for resources. But what's the connection between invasive vines and climate change the climate perspective is.

Cover can be ten or fifteen degrees cooler than neighborhoods without big trees also helped produce flooding by slowing down stormwater runoff thus report includes a number of recommendations to combat invasive vines is to mobilize more volunteers to attack the invaders.
