Invasive plants are non-native species that spread aggressively and out-compete native vegetation. They reduce forage for wildlife and remain a pervasive problem in the environment by infesting fields, forests, city streets, backyards, highways, disturbed ground, and industrial areas. Landowners and Crown land tenure holders are legally required to control invasive plants on their premises (BC Weed Control Act, Section 2).
Our licenced professionals have conducted treatments for municipalities and industries in a variety of settings.
Maple Leaf Forestry applies the principles of Integrated Pest Management to provide invasive plant management treatments. Our goal is to effectively reduce the rate of spread, severity of infestations, and distribution of invasive plants while protecting the environment and public health.
Options for invasive plant treatments include:
- Herbicide applications
- Removal of invasive plants
- Biological controls
- Education for our clients to mitigate the detrimental impacts of invasive plants
