Invasive Vegetation Control

Invasive Vegetation Control

Non-native plant species can quickly become a menace to natural areas. Invasive plants aggressively take up the precious space and resources native ecosystems need to thrive, with the possibility of causing severe damage. DRG crews are specially trained at the identification and control of invasive plant species. The DRG team can employ a variety of effective invasive vegetation treatment methods, including:

  • Mowing
  • Prescribed burning
  • Herbicide application
  • Cultural treatment
Invasive Pest Control

Invasive Pest Control

Invasive pests, such as Spotted lanternfly, Asian long-horned beetle, and Emerald ash borer, can infest and damage large swaths of tree species, causing tree fatalities and long-term impacts on tree species diversity. Davey Resource Group works closely with state and federal environmental agencies to control and eradicate invasive pests in infested areas.
