Sometimes it does but usually it requires multiple burns over a two or three year period.

They are currently testing to see how many burns it takes to set back some patches of black locust on part of SGL 44.

Some black locust is good but there are places where it is taking over the warm season grass fields. That isn't so good.

Autumn Olive produces great tasting berries when picked at the right time but it is getting out of control in some areas where you can't walk 10 feet without running into those.

Autumn Olive as well as Multi flora rose was one of the things pushed by the Dept of Ag and the Dept of forestry and the PGC as habitat as food for wildlife and fence row plantings for farms. By the time they were declared a full blown problem and noxious weed because of the spreading uncontrollably by the same people who were pushing the planting of them for wildlife habitat they were out of control, being spread by birds and other species that ate the berries and rose hips. The down side is they created a problem because of the indiscriminate spreading and the difficulty of controlling the propagation of the plants they were pretty much out of control. The bottom line is, whether the shrubs are good or bad depends on what you want to do with your land.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

WW where I hunt down in Greene Co. the older hunters told me when they were young and got their hunting licenses the people that sold the licenses gave packets of seed too disperse while hunting and it was Multi Flora Rose from what they told me. Like you said it was for habitat and all back in the day WW.
