Controlling Invasive Plants in Small Woodlots

Impacts of invasive plants and the characteristics which make them so successful, control approaches, including herbicides, and a discussion of their use.

This presentation covers the impacts of invasive plants and the characteristics which make them so successful.  An integrated approach to control is discussed with a focus on herbicides and their application methods.  Specific herbicide active ingredients used for control are described.  Lastly, four common invasive plant species, a grass, vine, shrub, and tree, are covered as examples of growth characteristics requiring different control measures.
