Webinar: Invasive Woody Plant Management – Part 2 of 2 (Free)

2:00 3:30pm EST

This is an online event

Encroachment of woody vegetation threatens the biology and ecology of many types of ecosystems. The loss of natural foragers, fires, human-caused disturbance, and the introduction of non-native plants combine to impact native vegetation and its associated wildlife. Removing invasive woody species improves the function of local ecosystems and opens the landscape to provide more suitable habitats for birds and other wildlife. This webinar is the second of a two-part series on managing invasive woody plants and will cover oriental bittersweet, honeysuckle. Attendees will learn the IPM practices used to provide cost-effective management of these woody invasives such as mechanical removal (multiflora rose, Japanese barberry, and cutting and shredding), herbicide treatments, fire, and biological controls. In addition, participants will learn how to identify these species and to develop IPM-based strategies for their prevention and control in your region.
