Tackling Multiflora Rose
A white flowering plant, multiflora rose is taking over prairies, savannas, open woodland and forest edges—in other words almost everything. Left untreated it forms dense thickets that smother out other vegetation.
The beautiful blue hue on this bush is courtesy of the herbicide treatment Heartland Forest Consulting crew members applied to help eliminate the invasive.

Controlling Bush Honeysuckle
Bush honeysuckle invades quickly and outcompetes native plants. It can create a tough thicket making your woods very hard to navigate. Bush honeysuckle also produces toxic compounds in its roots that inhibit the growth of neighboring plants.
In the spring, it leafs out earlier than other plants and steals light from native species, such as wildflowers and a variety of germinating seeds. All which need sunlight to grow, not to mention soil moisture and nutrients that honeysuckle also depletes.
In the fall, bush honeysuckle remains green after other species have lost their leaves. This gives it extra strength and nutrition, another competitive advantage. If you think you have invasives and need help controlling bush honeysuckle, contact us today!
