Invasive Plant Management: Planning
Developing an Invasive Plant Management Plan
The first step in invasive plant management planning is to identify land management goals, desired plant communities, and invasive plant management objectives. Basic steps include:
- Perform an inventory or survey to create a scope of the problem.
- Identify and prioritize invasive plant species and/or invasive plant threats.
- Create a list of priority species and learn about their impacts and biology.
- Determine whether they are on your state or province's noxious weed list.
