To the Editor:
Mowing ditches seems to be something that could be eliminated or reduced. This would improve habitat and save tax dollars. Tree lines and hedgerows are being removed in order to grow more crops. Keeping the roadsides unmowed will help mitigate the resulting habitat loss for pollinators and other wildlife.
This is the second year that we have asked the township not to mow our ditch in front of crop/wood lands. The wildflowers and “good plants” are doing well, and the only thing that has had to be kept up with is taking care of some burdock on a plant-by-plant basis, which we do.
