For this month’s program Eric Mason will discuss upland invasive plants that are common in the area and methods to remove them mechanically and treat them with herbicides. He will also discuss common invasive plant removal tools, herbicide application methods, common chemicals, and the pros and cons of each.

He got his start on invasive species removal as a forestry technician on Emerald Ash Borer Surveys and spent one year as a professional logger. He holds a restricted use pesticide license for natural areas treatment and has been applying herbicides for two years.
