The Woody Invasives of the Great Lakes Collaborative

Learn to manage invasive woody plants

Wigl Website LogoThe Woody Invasives of the Great Lakes (WIGL) Collaborative brings interested partners together to consolidate information on woody invasive plant species. Their goal is to provide residents from all walks of life with the information they need to manage invasive woody plants and restore habitat for native plants and wildlife around the Great Lakes.

2021 website updates include a Landscape Alternatives App & Brochure highlighting alternatives to woody invasive plants common in gardens and yards in the Great Lakes Basin. Landscape alternative galleries have also been added to the website. Check out these links for a virtual tour of beautiful and non-invasive trees, shrubs, and woody vines & groundcovers. If you’re looking to replace a specific invasive plant, they have provided mini-galleries to the invasive species profiles as well.

Please share this fantastic resource with your neighbors, friends, clients and colleagues!
