    Our friends at Arlington Parks and Recreation asked me to help get the word out about an upcoming invasive plant treatment, which will begin around August 15th and be completed within a few days, weather permitting.
    More, from the email I was forwarded:
    "Dominion Energy, in partnership with NOVA Parks and NoVA Prism (a consortium of local agencies - including Arlington County and the City of Falls Church - interested in managing invasive species in Northern Virginia), will coordinate a herbicide application along the Washington & Old Dominion Trail in an effort to control invasive plants and restore native meadow. The invasive plant control will occur along the Trail between South Walter Reed Drive in Arlington to just past Virginia Lane in Falls Church-Fairfax County. Invasive Plant Control, Inc., (invasiveplantcontrol.com) was selected to perform this application due to their extensive knowledge in the field of invasive plant management. IPC will be using a low volume, selective, backpack application of a triclopyr/glyphosate tank mix to control target vegetation to include porcelain vine, mile-a-minute vine and autumn olive. These herbicides are readily available at most ‘box’ stores. The application is expected to begin August 15th and be completed a few days later, weather permitting."

    They'll also be posting up some of these signs!

    There is a tree down on the WOD about 1/2 mile east of Clark's Crossing that completely blocks the trail, with no way around it. I managed to lift my bike and myself over part of the obstacle and pushed through and under other parts. I didn't take a pic because it was raining and, well, you've seen trees.

    Tree down on MVT just north of the last trail intersection north of the Humpback Nridge. Blocks the entire trail and is hard to see because short sight lines. Be careful.

    Tree down across the C&O towpath, about half way between Chain Bridge and Key Bridge. Completely blocks the towpath and no way over, so need to go down steep slope to CCT.
