Blue Ridge PRISM Invasive Plant Workshop
October 29, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Non-native invasive plants are quickly overwhelming many properties by tearing down the forest canopy and overtaking our native plants at the tree, shrub and/or groundcover levels. Understanding what invasive plants exist on the landscape and what it will take to control them can often feel overwhelming.
Our spring and summer workshops will enable you to learn how to confidently identify and manage invasive plants.
Topics covered in this session include:
Identifying invasive plants in spring and summer
Which invasives you can best kill now
Which invasives you should treat later
Best spring-time and summer-time practices for each invasive
Using manual & mechanical control methods
Methods for controlling invasives with herbicides
Choosing the right herbicide and equipment, and using it properly
Planning a work schedule with best timings for multiple plants
There will also be an opportunity to identify your plants, so bring samples of your mystery plants and we’ll identify them!
