Cosponsored by the Salisbury Association Land Trust and Friends of Washinee Park.
This illustrated talk is about the curtailment of invasive plant impact on Northeast woodlands. Using Washinee Park Restoration as a case history, Zetterstrom shows the reversal of forest collapse and the return of balance, beauty, and public access to this historic landscape, Salisbury’s first park. The Washinee model is now being applied to the Housatonic Valley Regional High School north campus by the school’s Arboretum and Landscape Committee. The speakers will discuss effective invasive management skills, including invasive identification, mapping techniques, early detection strategies and safe and effective mechanical and chemical controls. There will be a tour of Washinee Park immediately following the talk.
