Invasive plants and insects can be problematic for forest landowners. From
vines that take over disturbed areas, forest edges, and tree canopies to insects
that defoliate and girdle trees, these pests not only decimate the natural
ecosystem, they are difficult to control and can be expensive to eradicate.
The Maryland Forest Service has compiled informational fact sheets on many invasive species that are giving homeowners and landowners management problems. Please take a look at the sheets and learn what you can do to help Maryland control invasive species.
