Invasive Species Removal

Warner Parks is Epicenter of National Invasive Species Removal Effort

Invasive Plant Control recently hosted an invasive species removal technician training in Warner Parks. Thanks to our four-person crew and their 15 trainees, a total of 4.5 acres was cleared of bush honeysuckle and chinese privet during this process, surmounting to approximately 27,000 stems cut.  

The 15 technicians arrived from Michigan,Louisiana, Alabama, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio,Georgia, New York, Arizona, Florida and Indiana and will return home to their respective parks and implement their invasive species eradication efforts. We’re grateful for the contribution they’ve made to our own efforts to be #InvasiveFreeWP and their efforts across the country!

Starting next week, our full-time crew will turn their efforts to foliar spraying the sprouts in areas previously treated, as the long-term management of invasive species includes removal and ongoing treatment. After that, they turn back to the Mossy Ridge to continue their efforts along this iconic trail.

It's My Nature Campaign

Eradication of the invasive species throughout Warner Parks is one of the primary focuses of our It’s My Nature Campaign. We hope you’ll consider learning more and making a contribution to our efforts, for after all, it’s our nature, Nashville.
