INVASIVE SPECIES CAN BE HARMFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT. Some invasive plants have thorns or are toxic to humans and can pose health and safety concerns. All invasive species have the potential to take over existing vegetation!

       Overpopulation of an invasive species can strip the environment of essential nutrients and cause disruption of natural ecosystem processes thus deteriorating the ecosystem in an environment.              

 

        If a native species is threatened by an invasive species, the native species can become extinct. An estimated 42% of the species currently on the federal Endangered Species Act list are imperiled at some degree because of some harm caused by an invasive species. Not only are invasive plants often unsightly they can be dangerous to the longevity of your environments biodiversity.

  • Prevent the spread of noxious plants

  • Maintain Access to the property

Brush & Invasive Plant Removal is done is stages. This allows for the most effective removal and green waste management strategies.

       Both the rural and urban environments pose their own challenges to green waste removal, however, some of these strategies overlap and can be applied to most any environment. Effective green waste management techniques are essential to keeping a safe accessible & hazard free environment.

  • Exercise Proper Invasive species disposal ( Disposal of Invasive Plants is Different than Normal Green Waste)  (Thorny  items like blackberry & noxious items like Poison Oak  are kept apart from other compost materials so that they can be disposed of separately. )

  • Reduce the amount of green waste

  • Recycle or compost usable green waste

  • Save the Haul & Disposal Cost of Pounds and Pounds of Green waste!

 

What is a Hügelkultur? 

A Hügelkultur is a horticultural technique where a mound or (Raised bed ) is created using a base of wood debris and other compostable plant materials.

  • Save the cost of hauling heavy stumps and wood debris                                              

  • Enrich your soil with native materials                                                    

  • Create an ideal environment for planting

Hügelkultur IT!
