Invasive Species (plants)

Invasive Species (plants) – http://www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/plants/main.shtml 

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • Where is kudzu a problem?
  • What invasive species could I find in a national park like Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina?
  • What does a “tree of heaven” look like?


Invasive species are plants that are not native to a particular area but have out-competed the local animal and plant life. Think rabbits in Australia or Kudzu in the south. This federal site has images, profiles and control measures for a number of different invasive plants.
