Kentucky scientists agree…

Invasive plant species out-compete native plants and harm Kentucky ecosystems. We must eliminate invasive species and let natives grow. Native plants benefit pollinators, birds, fish, frogs and all wildlife. For example, bush honeysuckle spreads toxins and chokes out tree seedlings, ferns, native flowers, etc. Nothing can grow underneath it, so it takes over. But we will remove it, so native wildflowers, ferns and trees can grow back in.
