Invasive Plants Webinars

September 29 @ 1:00 pm - October 22 @ 5:00 pm

$10

Choose one date:  Sept 29, Oct 7, or Oct 22.

Non-native invasive plants are quickly overwhelming many properties by tearing down the forest canopy and overtaking our native plants at the tree, shrub and/or groundcover levels. Understanding what invasive plants exist on the landscape and what it will take to control them can often feel overwhelming

Our workshops will enable you to learn how to confidently identify and manage invasive plants.

Topics covered in this session include:

  • Identifying invasive plants
  • Which invasives you can best kill now
  • Which invasives you should treat later
  • Best seasonal practices for each invasive
  • Using manual & mechanical control methods
  • Methods for controlling invasives with herbicides
  • Choosing the right herbicide and equipment, and using it properly
  • Planning a work schedule with best timings for multiple plants
A note about our workshops: Our workshops are being conducted via Zoom and contain the same content as in-person workshops except that the outdoor element will be conducted when it is safe to do so.
CBLP CEUs are available.
