The reason we're alerting folks about this vine is because a senior citizen on Kneeland Avenue in Elmhurst had her gardener pulling weeds. When he was done, he told her he found the Virginia Creeper had gotten into her main sewer line and was able to pull it out. The Creeper that was invading her property came from the unmaintained LIRR property adjacent to the homes there.
Speaking of the LIRR property, both Assembly Members Barnwell and Cruz have been notified about the lack of maintenance. We are not asking for them to spray chemicals, but just want them to cut down the jungle. To date, the LIRR has yet to take action.
