Hello, I live in Rochester New York, near a gully/ravine by woodland. Quite a gem. Anyway here's my question and concern. In the past 35 years there have been trillium in small "pockets" or single standing on a Northern facing wooded slope. Someone has bought the land and built on it. This Northern slope is now the dumping ground for tree & plant debris. The trillium try to grow, but very sparsely, under this vegetative debris (leaves, immature tree cuttings and stumps, etc.). I'm concerned because from my understanding the trillium is a rare species. ? My parents' neighbor is respectful, but hasn't seen the change in the landscape from my perspective. Anyway, what do you think? Should I mind my own business, or is the trillium's habitat rare enough to do something about? I appreciate your response!
If possible, you should determine which of these species grow in your ravine and then contact the New York State Program Coordinator for the Endangered Species and Wildlife Diversity Program to see what options you might have for protecting the habitat of the trilliums..
