Welcome

Invasive plants threaten all ecosystems from natural areas, managed forests, and agricultural production fields to the built landscape.

Once in a new environment, a plant may simply die. Or it may take hold and reproduce, but with little noticeable effect on its surroundings. But sometimes a new species spreads unimpeded, with devastating ecological or economic results.

An invasive species is a non-native species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human, animal, or plant health, and that do not provide an equivalent or greater benefit to society. (ISAC White Paper,  Executive Order 13112)
