This is how you maintain a swamp. First step is you burn all the bullshit coating the places you could put to some human use!
Then you cut your stupid fucking willows and root the cuttings so you can grow more stupid fucking willows. You need em.
Goddammit witch hazel bullshit. Fuck all I can do about it! This swamp is home to severely threatened ash and elms. Fuck them I guess!
But at the end of the goddamn day, you have a swamp, and it sings with wildlife!
