I am coming to the opinion that if it is indigenous to Earth, then maybe we should leave it alone.
Then I see some plants strangling others, making monocultures, causing rashes, giving us headaches and hayfever, etc. Some of them are imported and some are indigenous. It is getting harder and harder to believe that places can have fully indigenous flora - and maybe we shouldn't stress about it too much.
