what is this weed.

thedudefrom1976(6 Long Island NY)August 21, 2013

I'm in eastern long island ny. The stalk turns reddish as it gets bigger and the roots are very dense like ginsing and it grows like really fast. In some places its six feet tall. You can snap the hollow red stalks easily even when large. This plant is everywhere on my property.

Yeah that's it. Sheesh, at least I know now why it wouldn't leave that space. I got some work ahead of me.
