Invasive Plants and Road Maintenance 2011

Invasive plant species are non-native plants that have spread into our native fields, forests, and wetlands, as well as, along our roadsides. These problematic plants can spread rapidly, are difficult to remove or control, can cause costly roadside maintenance issues, and compromise driver safety by impairing visibility. Come to this workshop to learn how to improve your management results and cut costs. You’ll learn to identify the most common roadside invasive species, see best management practices for both control and prevention, and discuss the issues associated with vegetation management plans on rights-of way. Following a morning presentation and lunch,a nearby field trip will provide an opportunity to identify several plants firsthand and discuss control techniques (lunch/field trip at Chester location only). The field trip will happen rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.
