Combine Invasive Non-Native Plant Species Threads...?

There are at least 3 "Invasive Non-Native Plant Species" Threads in at least 2 forums.

In "Make No Small Plans", where the Environmental Planning Threads now reside:
Invasive bamboo plant becoming major crisis in U.S., world
and
Invasive plant: Japanese Knotweed threat

In "Friday Afternoon Club" (serious topic):
Scary plants


QUESTION:
Should the above threads, (and any similar ones that exist), be combined into one thread, titled something like:
"Invasive Non-Native Plant Species"?

Also, if combined, would they reside in "Make No Small Plans", or would another sub-forum be more appropriate?

Having multiple threads with similar themes is not a bad thing as it indicates continued interest in related topics over time. The three threads started in different locations at different times are fine remaining as separate entities in my view.

The upshot:
Dangerous though Giant Hogweed may be, right now the topic is embedded in the middle of two different threads.

The three threads started in different locations at different times are fine remaining as separate entities in my view.
Given ^this^ policy of separate entities, should the Giant Hogweed danger be a separate thread? That is, a thread split-off from the Invasive plant: Japanese Knotweed threat?
