I was at my local garden center last weekend and noticed a poster listing the invasive plant species of concern here in New Hampshire. Can you tell me where to find more information and how to control these plants?
Invasive plants compete with and displace our native plant species, potentially leading to loss of habitat for native flora and fauna. In their native habitats, these invasive species generally have natural plant competitors or insect pests that keep their populations in check.
The New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, through the Plant Industry Division, lists 26 invasive upland plant species. These can all be viewed in the New Hampshire Guide to Upland Invasive Species.
