TALK: Thinking holistically about invasive plants on your farm and in your woods
SPEAKER: Eric Burkhart is the instructor and Plant Science Program Director for Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center.
The topic of invasive plants can be confusing, contradictory, and even controversial for landowners wondering what, if anything, they should do about invasive plants on their farm or in their woods. This talk will present current philosophical and practical approaches to thinking about and managing invasive plants on your land. Guidance and considerations relating to the potential impacts of invasive plants, control and management strategies, staging and timing of control activities, and restoration of heavily invaded areas will be discussed.
