New Homeowner’s Guide to Invasive Plant Removal
TN-IPC developed a step-by-step guide for identifying and controlling invasive plants in the residential landscape. “Invasive Plant Primer for the Home Landscape: Identify, Control, Replant” is designed to carefully walk homeowners through the process and help them select the best solution for effective and lasting control. Thanks to the Tennessee Division of Forestry and a grant from U.S. Forest Service, printed copies of the guide are also available.
TN-IPC in Tennessee
We updated our name, logo, Web site, and plant list, but our mission remains the same: to promote public awareness of the serious threats non-native invasive plants pose to natural areas and provide solutions to manage those threats. TN-IPC is a chapter member of the Southeast Exotic Pest Plant Council and the national organization, National Association of Invasive Plant Councils.
