    Great job guys but I have a serious beef with 3:56. "you can already see plants are already growing through the jut netting" Unless I am seeing things, that's Poison Oak and deserves to die...die, die, die, die! I just spent a good part of yesterday cutting back PO on my own personal "flow trail" and I hate that evil weed.

    OK carry on, nice work...you guys rock.

    Can I embed this in an article Hans? I'll also use some of Peter's (tburger) words and photos.

    Was not poison oak. Believe you me. Anything green out there is scrutinized like a Kardashian demo reel.

    Huh. I guess it could be Oak Tree sprouts but sure looks like PO. I have to imagine you guys are all over that...

    The poison oak (that exact week of that exact year ) is darker, shinier green, and not so wiggly on the edges

    Fear not, Plant Nerd Girl will be out at the Flow Trail this weekend, dealing with all things vegetation. (And probably moving dirt, too, but I have small, weak arms, much like a T-Rex.) For those of you that are interested, we'll be doing some intensive reveg in the fall, when the timing's better.

    So, I always thought it would be super fun to beat a dead horse. Since I don't have a dead horse, this thread will do. I have been building trails since the early 90s here in the Bay Area and feel I know a S-load about PO and it's different varieties. Anyhow, I was riding in Soquel Demo today and happened upon this fine batch of PO which was verified by several in my group and forest managers I typically work with (and the rashes I have received from working with the planty rat bastards). Looks exactly like the plant in your vid. Though there is a (very small) chance I am still wrong (heck I have been wrong many times before it it wouldn't be my last), I am not convinced that the plant in your video is of the harmless variety. I reckon it could possibly be Oak Tree sprouts (doubt it) but I wouldn't recommend rubbing those on your ball sack anytime soon.

    Thanks for the trail work...

    Well, I filmed it but that doesn't make me an expert as to what it is... But I did film it because it was growing back through the netting, reestablishing itself, and it looked nice. I mean just look at that image, such a purty little innocent plant, doing no harm, growing up to be big and strong... Just like that little critter in Alien.

    And yes, it looked/looks like P.O to me.

    It's PO. I took a bunch out today, will take out more later. We're going to implement a big veg mgmt program in the fall, with transplanting of natives and removal of PO in places where it could be a problem. If it's on the backsides of berms, that's not a problem unless you're really out of control!

    FWIW, PO is one of the few plants that will naturally take seed and sprout in the area. There's a thick duff layer that impedes the germination of many other plants. The best way to discourage PO is to encourage the establishment of other natives that can crowd it out. Over the summer and into the fall, we're going to need help growing other natives like western sword-fern so we can transplant them along the trail to crowd out PO. We'll have more info about this program as we figure out the details, but for those of you with green thumbs, we'll really need the help!! Gardeners: The Flow Trail Needs You!!
