In the environment there are ecosystems where individual invasive plants are surrounded by native plants. Then there are other areas where different species of invasive plants have grown together to completely dominate the landscape. These areas, known as Invasive Plant Biomasses, are defined as an area where there are multiple invasive plant species present which are all growing into each other creating an impenetrable mass of plant material inaccessible to people and wildlife. An Invasive Plant Biomass can include invasive plants such as Oriental Bittersweet, Multiflora Rose, Autumn Olive, Russian Olive, Honeysucke, Privet, Japanese Barberry and more.
Invasive Plant Biomasses have become increasingly common in developed areas where invasive plants have been left to grow, along the edge of forests and fields and in stands of dead forest. Into the 2020s large tracts of the northeastern North American forest will die because the dominate tree in these stands the native White Ash, Fraxinus americanum is being killed by the invasive Emerald Ash Borer.
If these Invasive Plant Biomasses are left alone they will fester as areas without native plants and provide scant habitat to native wildlife. The seedlings from the Biomass will propagate into non-infested areas bringing the problem of invasive plants to new places.
Invasive Plant Biomasses require specialized equipment to demolish the invasive plants and leave the native plants in the affected area. After that is completed the invasive plants are treated and the site is restored with native plants.
Invasive Plant Solutions offers comprehensive solutions to heal lands inflicted by an Invasive Plant Biomass. A management plan will be constructed around your site and partnering contractors may be brought into the project, if necessary. Over a period of 2-3 years your site can transform from an invasive plant problem into a clean and beneficial solution for you and the planet.
