Managing Invasive Species in Healthy Urban Forests

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Tue, Jan, 13, 2015 @ 02:01 AM


Invasive species are threatening local trees and urban forests. Invasives employ strategies such as fast growth, rapid reproduction and tolerance of a wide range of environmental conditions in order to survive at all costs. Biogenic vectors and non-native pests and diseases can contribute to the demise of local trees and economic costs. Learn how the ACTrees network is leading the fight against invasive species on #Treechat.
