2023 Annual Education Symposium

So, You've Killed the Buckthorn and Garlic Mustard: Now What?

 With Guest Speaker Jim Reinartz

A native plant community is the final goal of invasive plant removal. Can planting native competitors in forests help move you more quickly to a desirable community? What has been tried, what works, and how can we learn more?

At the SEWISC Symposium on 7 November 2023, Jim Reinartz gave a talk titled “So, You've Killed the Buckthorn and Garlic Mustard: Now What?” and offered access to Excel file versions of the tables he presented. These tables describe seed mixes that have been used or recommended for planting after buckthorn has been removed from a badly infested site. Click the link below to view these documents.
