Identify and Control Non-Native Invasive Plants in Spring – Part 1: Introduction and Identification

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Tree Steward Tim Maywalt will present this two-part class by Zoom. Managing the invasive plants that are overtaking our green spaces is a challenge. But any of us can do it with the knowledge to identify and treat them. Part 1 will show you how to identify about 30 common invasive plants in the Virginia Piedmont.  Part 2 illustrates a wide range of options for treating them. Please register on Eventbrite here.

We will cover:

  • Identifying invasive plants
  • Why fall/winter is a good time to control invasive plants
  • Planning your control program
  • Using manual & mechanical control methods
  • Choosing the right herbicide and equipment, and using it properly
  • Chemical control methods
  • Forest safety, equipment and herbicide safety, and personal protective equipment.
  • Reference documents for more detailed identification and treatment information.
  • Sources for equipment, supplies and professional help from State Foresters and Conservationists and commercial vendors

This talk is free, but donations are appreciated!
