    I hate buckthorn with a passion. We pulled a ton out at one of the state parks when I was in high school for a school project. It's sharp, nasty, and I don't doubt it can be declining all kinds of species around here.

    Oh I think I know what it is. I looked it up and I think we used to have some in our previous yard. Possibly had some in the new house yard. Weeds suck. I hate thistle. It is awful. Pricky and impossible to get rid of.

    It grows like crazy! I swear, when I pull out 1 bush in my parent's woods, 10 more appear in it's place. It's a horrible plant and needs to be gone since it isn't native around here!
