Invasive plants are not only a threat to conservation lands, they also pose a threat in your yard. In this 1-hr Wellesley Conservation Land Trust webinar, learn from Cricket Vlass, Town of Wellesley’s Horticulturist and Landscape Planner:
* WHY invasive shrubs are a threat not only to native plants but also to wildlife such as birds and butterflies
* WHAT are six types of local invasive shrubs: burning bush, oriental bittersweet, bush honeysuckle, Japanese barberry, glossy buckthorn, and multiflora rose
* HOW to identify and remove these invasive shrubs
* WHAT are native plants that can be used to replace these invasives
