Non-native and Invasive Forest Plants Workshops for Landowners

The Non-native and Invasive Forest Plants Workshops for Landowners is a series of 6 one-day educational workshops featuring presentations by experts in non-native invasive plants that impact North Carolina’s forests. Each workshop will engage regionally based stakeholder groups in the planning and educational content.

What you will learn

  • What are non-native and invasive species, and why should you care?
  • Identification of specific problem species
  • The impacts of these plants on forest communities (ecologic, economic and cultural)
  • How non-native species are introduced
  • What are the risks of the “do-nothing” style of management
  • Gain exposure to organized NNI stakeholder groups and efforts currently taking shape, or ongoing, in your region
  • Resources available to landowners and what steps you can take
  • How your neighbors and local professionals are dealing with NNI challenges.
