“According to a study conducted by U.S. Forest Service and university scientists and published in the journal NeoBiota, at least one invasive species is present in 39 percent of forested plots sampled nationwide for invasive plants by the Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program. Results are provided for all U.S. regions and reveal that a significant portion of the more than 741 million acres of forested land in the United States has been invaded.”

UD partnership with Mt. Cuba aims to make ‘eco-friendly’ a selling point for modern gardeners

Check out what University of Delaware and Mt. Cuba Center are doing to help reduce the spread of invasive plants!

“A partnership between the Mt. Cuba Center Inc. and University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources strives to find varieties of native plants that will charm the customer and benefit the environment. As part of the search, they are taking cues from the true judges of a plant’s beneficial nature – the bees, butterflies and other insects that gather (or not) on the flowers and leaves of the plants that gardeners cultivate.” –From University of Delaware College of Agriculture and Natural Resources
