Have theory that noxious, invasive French Tamarix and Russian olive sneaked onto Tortoise Mountain together, around the same time -- fewer than 100 years ago (or, as we say in our non-RCT Algonquin-based language "Gasg'ptnnaqanipu na't").

Colonizer names for Tamarix often referred to as "salt cedar", though it is not a cedar.

The oleander from colonialist Russia could maybe pass as some sort of willow(??) by folks who do not know plants, but it most definitely is not Salix -- as of RCT 2022, it has killed most native willow. There is ENDANGERED WILLOW FLYCATCHER BIRD needs its habitat.

Part of what is going to happent his summer ... gonna be something like a Texas Chainsaw Massacre on that god damned Russian oleander (texasinvasives.org/plant_datab) infestation.
