Invasive Plants in Goshen

This handout from the May 2013 Goshen Open Space program on ticks and Lyme disease by Hilltown forester Lincoln Fish has links and a reading list to learn more about how to identify and control invasive plants such as multiflora rose, Japanese barberry, Japanese knotweed, and Oriental bittersweet. A few of the topics covered are:
  • The connections between the growing deer population, disappearance of native wildflowers and the increase in invasive plants
  • Garlic mustard and butterflies
  • Japanese barberry, ticks and Lyme disease
  • Controlling Japanese knotweed in Williamsburg
