Invasive Plants & Treatment
There is a great deal of information available for the identification and treatment of invasive plant species. Below, we’ve provided identification and treatment information for the most common invasive plant species found around Muskegon Lake. Before deciding to treat a plant, make sure you can properly identify it, identify the surrounding plants, and choose the appropriate technique. It’s also important to get the permission of landowners or neighbors as needed, and to obtain any necessary permits for the treatments.
Always work within your skill set, and never, ever remove or treat a plant if you don’t know what it is.
The Midwest Invasive Species Information Network is an amazing resource for the identification and recommended treatments of invasive species.
