When you need a concrete bunker to contain a plant, you know you’re in trouble.
Recently, Connecticut enacted Public Act No. 13-82 which states: “No person who plants running bamboo or who allows running bamboo to be planted on his or her property shall permit such bamboo to grow beyond the boundaries of his or her property. On and after October 1, 2013, any person who violates the provisions of this subsection shall be liable for any damages caused to any neighboring property by such bamboo, including, but not limited to, the cost of removal of any running bamboo that grew beyond the boundaries of his or her property.”
These troublesome plants will hijack your garden, trees — and your neighbor’s yard.
