Did you know that invasive plants are a major problem in New Jersey? These exotic invasive plants can out-compete native species and create an imbalance in the natural ecosystem. The most common invasive trees in NJ are Tree of Heaven, Japanese Barberry, Norway Maple, Common Privet, and European Buckthorn.
These invasive trees have been around for some time and it’s important to take action now before they become more widespread. To help control invasive plant populations it is important to remove them from your property or leave them alone if they haven’t yet spread too much. Additionally, planting native species instead of invasive ones can help promote a healthy balance of biodiversity! So next time when you’re planning your landscape design, make sure to look for native species and avoid invasive plants! Together, we can protect and preserve our natural resources.
