FoAGM made a proposal to the Lexington Conservation Commission in 2004 to eradicate the Japanese Knotweed along a 100 foot section of the Minuteman Bike path. After some research two experimental methods were started in April 2005. One method is repeated cutting of the plant. The second is to dig up the rhizomes and cover the area with black plastic. The following are the reports of several FoAGM members who have worked on the project. Additional volunteers for any size time commitments are most appreciated.
