Connecticut Land Conservation Conference
March 25, 2023, Wesleyan University, Middletown
Usdan Center, 45 Wyllys Avenue, Middletown.
Sharing Management Strategies for Controlling Woody Invasives in Fields and Edges
This workshop will focus on what you can do to manage invasive species in fields and edges. It is important because of the importance of the pollinator habitats which native fields provide. The workshop will give specific examples of managing invasives in fields and edges: autumn olive, bush honeysuckles, Japanese knotweed and oriental bittersweet. It will review strategies, tools and techniques which will focus on invasive plant removal.
