Are your woodlands infested with invasive bush honeysuckle or wintercreeper? Did you spread wildflowers seeds but nothing is growing but fescue or Johnsongrass? Herbicides vs no herbicides? Power tools vs hand tools? Whether you're dealing with a small home landscape, 100 acres of woodlands or an old farm field, invasive plants and other weeds are always an issue.

Join ecologist and designer Jody Thompson to learn some of the best techniques for suppressing invasive plants and other weeds. We'll cover woodlands, home landscapes and grasslands/meadows and specific techniques for controlling trees, shrubs, grasses and vines. We'll also discuss efficient processes to deal with different sized situations and address your questions and concerns about herbicide use.
