Non-native invasive plants
A non-native invasive plant is a plant that’s introduced to an area by way of human intervention, and subsequently spreads and displaces the native vegetation of the respective area, causing economic harm, environmental harm, or harm to human health. They often have perilous effects on the habitat of native wildlife, including songbirds, and are a leading cause for the loss of local species populations, as well as species extinction. Kudzu (Pueraria montana var. Lobata) is a well know non-native invasive plant, though it’s far from being the most perilous one.
Our treatments are designed to minimize damage from non-native invasive plants, including Chinese Privet (Ligustrum sinense) and others, while minimizing impact upon native species.
