Invasive Plant Management


Vegetation Control Service will help to identify invasive species on your property and develop an ongoing plan for the control of these plants.  Invasive species are generally non-native plants that decrease the diversity of the landscape by out-competing the native vegetation. Some of these species have the ability to kill the over story trees in a forest.  Others may restrict new native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants from becoming established.  Some of the common invasives include:

  Gossy buckthorn
  Multiflora rose
  Asiatic bittersweet
  Japanese barberry
  Autumn olive
  Japanese knotweed
  Winged euonymus (burning bush) 


Vegetation Control Service has an integrated vegetation management approach to invasive projects.  We use various chemical control methods, mechanical & natural control as well as preventative scouting & native planting design.
