Description: Have you noticed how privet appears to be exploding across the landscape? Privet is that rampant small-leaved shrub that stays green in winter and can be seen along many fencerows and forest edges, as well as invading interior forests. What at one time was considered the staple farm house shrub is now completely out of control. It has become a plague. In fact, it is spreading through our most precious forests -- bottomland hardwoods and forest preserves. What was once considered beauty to grace our homes has turned against us to rapidly spread along roadsides and stream-sides to infiltrate our forests.
