Identify and Control Non-Native Invasive Plants in Fall / Winter – Part 2: Control Methods

November 16 @ 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.

We will cover:

  • Identifying invasive plants
  • Which invasives you can best treat now and when to treat them if spring isn’t the best time
  • Using manual & mechanical control methods
  • Methods for controlling invasives with herbicides
  • Choosing the right herbicide and equipment, and using it properly
  • 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;
  • Restoration guidance for your green spaces after invasive plant removal.

 Check back in October for registration information.
