All About Invasives

The Nature Conservancy takes the threat of invasive plants very seriously. Lynn McNamara, the Vermont chapter's Northern Critical Lands Manager, says these non-native plants can cause widespread harm by out-competing native plants, increasing erosion along stream banks, clogging streams and waterways, and providing less nutritious food and insufficient cover for wildlife. Because invasive species are free of natural restraints, they can spread rapidly and choke out native species.
