Salt Cedar Eradication.

Recently on a drive down Highway 8 to San Diego I spent my drive thinking about the Salt Cedar. Seeing rows of them down the freeway gave me cause for concern. Was it true that they are toxic and leave salt deposits in the soil? Do they shoot deep tap roots sucking needed water out of the deserts water table? Should they be eradicated?
 
Alot of us do not know what they are. Often in Tucson we drive by them just noticing the mammoth tree not thinking if they belong here as they look kind of gnarly. I have worked on a few of them and can assure you they are a prolific grower and are very water heavy. The size of them (I have seen them bigger than Eucalyptus) leads me to believe that they are able to shoot long roots capable of feeding that size.
 
Anyhow the question is "is the salt cedar eradication worthy" do they pose a threat? I write this blog encouraging everyone to do some research and form and opinion of their own. Native plants are essential to Arizona and they serve a purpose not taking from us but giving. Does the Salt Cedar give? Or does it take in excess? When different wildlife crosses or borders and threatens native fish and waters we go after it often realizing that we cannot reverse the plague but only try to minimize it.
 
Salt Cedar eradication seems to be a strong words for what means that we will only try to minimize the damage.
 
If you have one in your yard I encourage you to be informed and if the opportunity presents itself call a professional for removal.
