This webinar will describe efforts to establish Early Detection Rapid Response (EDRR) protocols across State Forest lands for high priority invasive plant species.

Based on protocols first described by the National Park Service, EDRR methods provide an opportunistic survey approach and straightforward treatment protocols to eradicate invasive plant species before they become well-established. The webinar will cover survey techniques, prioritization and establishment of an EDRR target list, and treatment guidance for species DCNR considers high priority on portions of State Forest lands, including poison-hemlock, wavyleaf basketgrass, Japanese angelica tree, and glossy buckthorn.

Presenter: Kelly Sitch, Forest Ecologist, PA DCNR Bureau of Forestry.
