the nonindegenous scourge of New England's arbor population... this is a vine species introduced from somewhere in Asia. It's much like kudzu vine in the American south - it's incredibly difficult to remove, nearly impossible to erreadicate even one major root. It's pretty in the off-seasons, but it's slowly killing all the wonderful indigenous tree and shrub species... It's a huge problem that's steadily getting worse. And, since the berries are so bright and prolific, the plant reproduces at an outrageous pace.
Alas, I liked this shot anyways.
