“English Ivy Kills Trees” Sign – Who Places Them?

OK – my curiosity is killing me! Who puts up these signs at random spots around Atlanta?

I’ve asked a number of arborists: No knowledge.

I’ve posted it on Facebook; 21,000 people saw the post: lots of comments, but no answer.

If you know, please email me!

Debbi D. comments “You’ve probably figured this out by now, but I suspect the signs are anonymously posted by the folks with the goat rental companies. They promote their goats as an environmentally sound way to rid your property of noxious weeds, especially ivy. They’ll also eat the bark off the trunks of your trees, if they stay long enough. Indiscriminate eaters!
