Tennessee is just finishing Invasive Plant Awareness Week. Many of our State Parks have conducted a Weed Wrangle (TM). This is an opportunity for Volunteers to come together and assist the Parks in removal of bush honeysuckle ,privet and other invasives which threaten natural landscapes. Today’s podcast brings the focus of attention to identification of trees, shrubs and vines , considered to be invasive, which are all too common in our city neighborhoods. Eliminating invasive exotics and going with native plants can make our city landscapes more conducive to wildlife such as songbird, pollinators and butterflies.
Our guest is Mike Berkley. Mike is one of Americas foremost experts on landscaping with native plants. He appears today courtesy of the Tennessee Invasive Plant Council.
