Litter (not natural!)

Asparagus aethiopicus Asparagus Fern threatening native vegetation - Australia

There are two kinds of litter in this photograph.  The beer bottle, which is no longer there, and the Asparagus "Fern" which is likely to thrive.   Asparagus aethiopicus is a native of South Africa, and a very threatening escapee from ornamental gardens.  When it gets going it smothers all native seedlings.

I wonder whether I'll get into trouble if I just march down with my garden fork and solve the problem in our dunes?

Invasive species are a problem here too.
