Plants Out Of Place

 

 

Flowers, shrubs and vegetables aren’t the only plants growing right now. Invasive species are also enjoying the warmer weather and sunshine and Door County Invasive Species Team (DCIST) coordinator Kari Hagenow says now is the time to get rid of those pesky plants.

Non-native plants that inhibit the native plants from thriving come in all different shapes, sizes and colors, but DCIST works on eradicating as many as possible throughout the county.

The key to controlling any invasive plant, says Hagenow, is knowing as much about the species as possible and stopping the spread. If you find an invasive plant on your property (like the wild parsnip pictured above), Hagenow suggests taking it to a landfill.

Tackling plant species can be tricky, but Hagenow says you don’t need to know every single plant. Just do a little research, find out what types of plants are invasive in your area and find the best way to keep them out of your yard. There is a whole team of invasive species experts in Door County willing to help residents identify and eliminate invasive species. You can start your own research here.
