What Can I Do to Prevent Invasive Plants on My Property?

  • Contact PLM Lake & Land Management, your local native plant society or state Department of Natural Resources to find out which plants are invasive in your area.
  • Learn to identify locally important invasive plants.
  • Remove invasive plants on your property or prevent their spread.
  • Only use non-invasive plants when landscaping your property.
  • If your property borders a natural area, consider using only native plants in your landscape.
  • Find non-invasive or native alternatives for invasive landscape plants.
  • Be cautious of plants that “hitchhike” from lake to lake in bilge water, props or trailers of recreational boats.
  • Make others in your neighborhood aware of invasive plants.
