Prevention – Landscapers and Horticulturalists
If you are a landscaper or horticulturalist, there is a lot to learn about what you can do to minimize the spread of invasive plants in your line of work.
People, animals, vehicles, and equipment can inadvertently carry seeds and other reproductive parts of invasive plants. Disturbing soil and existing vegetation during landscaping, construction, and property maintenance can also create conditions for invasive plants to thrive. Once invasive plants move in, they can become sources of seeds that further promote spread.
Prevention practices can greatly reduce the introduction and spread of invasive plants.
