Invasive Plant Management

Making a plan to remove the invasive plants on your property is arguably the most important thing you can do to preserve habitat, because once that habitat is destroyed, you will never be able to fully restore it.

Suggested Priorities List

If you are dealing with a large number of invasive plants, you probably can't work on them all at once. Below is an example of a plan to prioritize your efforts.

One approach is to start from the top down, especially to relieve trees of the vines that are smothering and choking them. On the one hand, it is good to remove invasive trees early, especially Tree of Heaven (despite the chart below). On the other hand, if you take away too many trees at once, you open up the canopy and make it more vulnerable to invasives, so it may be best to get rid of Tree of Heaven first but remove other invasive trees incrementally.

To stabilize a steep slope after removing invasives such as English Ivy, you can put down a jute fiber net made for this purpose.
