Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Recommended by Weston's Tree Advisory Group as an educational opportunity to protect Weston’s natural resources, join the Town of Wellesley’s Horticulturist and Landscape Planner Cricket Vlass to learn how invasive plants are not only a threat to conservation lands, but also pose a threat in your yard. In this 1-hour webinar, learn:
why invasive shrubs are a threat not only to native plants but also to wildlife such as birds and butterflies;
what the six types of local invasive shrubs are, including burning bush, oriental bittersweet, bush honeysuckle, Japanese barberry, glossy buckthorn, and multiflora rose;
how to identify and remove these invasive shrubs; and what native plants to use to replace these invasives.
