Nonnative plants continue to invade and spread through forests in the South. These infestations increasingly erode forest productivity, hinder forest use and management activities, and degrade diversity, habitat, and our recreational experiences. Managers and landowners need to recognize and be able to identify these threats. In the second of two webinars, we will introduce you to a new book that we co-authored, which is available free from the Southern Research Station, entitled “A Field Guide for the Identification of Invasive Plants in Southern Forests” (General Technical Report SRS-119). Part 1 will focus on the most prevalent invasive trees and shrubs that plague southern forests and where they occur. Part 2 will cover the prevalent invasive vines, grasses and canes, ferns, and forbs. The latest SRS Forest Inventory and Analysis maps will show their zones of occupation to alert you to those occurring around you and those spreading toward you. A webinar in September will present control and management approaches.
