This web page reviews work conducted at a creek crossing near the base of the mill dam at Peter's Creek Preserve in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Left to right are Coalition volunteer Gill Newberry (Peter's Creek Preserve custodian), Clemson student Lindsey Daniels, and Coalition volunteer Barbara Daniels. Kudzu roots can be very long, as can be seen from the root that Gill is holding. At this location the wet soil made roots relatively easy to completely dig up. It is only necessary to remove the root crown to kill a kudzu plant, not the entire root. The root was dug up merely as a matter of curiosity. July 2005.
