This is the fourth class in the Identifying and Dealing with Invasive Plant Species on Your Property course. We will focus on identifying common invasive perennial grasses, such as tall fescue, Johnson grass, and others in the eastern U.S. We’ll also talk about native species that may look similar and how to tell them apart from the invasive species, because we don’t want to accidentally get rid of the native species.
After we know how to identify the species, we’ll talk about how to control them. The control methods discussed will include mechanical controls, chemical controls, and other strategies that can help control the invasive species. No single method of control will work on all species, in all locations, on all sized properties, or at all times of the year. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so we will discuss them all and let you choose the best method for your property and unique situation.
