Please think twice. Please think three times.
Please don't plant bamboo anywhere near the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail.
In fact, nothing at all should be planted inside the 60-foot-wide state park boundaries! If in doubt ask the State Park Manager, Gary Ricci, Tel. 914 693 5259.
What's especially wrong with bamboo barriers? Bamboo knows no borders. Even from deep inside your back yard, bamboo roots will quickly decamp for the Aqueduct! They invade and loosen the tunnel brickwork underneath the trail. They threaten the structural integrity of the aqueduct.
