Kudzu and Ozone

We know surface ozone is a problem. We find now that kudzu adds to it.
From the first article about the effects of ozone:

“Tree growth, measured in biomass, is already 7% less than the late 1800s, and this is set to increase to a 17% reduction by the end of the century.”

And from the second:

“Kudzu grabs nitrogen from the air and puts it into the soil. There microbes convert nitrogen into nitrous oxide, one of the pollutants that also comes from automobile exhaust. That gas escapes from the soil and into the air, and undergoes reactions that lead to the creation of ozone.”

I seem to recall another quote:

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy”
