Invasive Plant Control

Invasive species are a problem for many of our gardens and surrounding natural habitats. As gardeners, sometimes we contribute to the problem by either nurturing plants we don’t know are invasive or by trying to control invasives in ways that make things worse, not better. Did you know that cutting the vine of Oriental Bittersweet stimulates regrowth?

Littleton Conservation Trust’s Rick Findlay wrote a series of articles on Invasive species for their newsletter over many years. These articles were recently assembled into one document to make it easier to find and read them all. You can find the document on their website in a link near the top of their invasive plant project page:
