Stewardship – Habitat Enhancement
Invasive Weed Control
Noxious weeds and other exotic plants once established frequently out-compete native vegetation. Negative impacts include loss of natural cover and forage for wildlife and livestock, decreased native plant diversity, decreased stream flow in riparian areas, and altered wetland hydrology.
Depending on the type of weed and the degree of infestation, a number of methods may be used to control exotics, including herbicide spraying, mechanical treatment, prescribed burning or grazing, or re-vegetation with native species. Our biologists can help you determine which method is right for your property and locate potential funding sources.
