NE WWN Fall Event. Buckthorn ID & Hands-on Control Methods

On October 24, 2015, Northeast WWN member Peggy Meseroll hosted a buckthorn removal event on land that she manages. Gail Bong, NRCS Technician, gave a “Buckthorn 101” talk and they hacked and chemmed a good sized area, and prescribed follow-up to kill the seedlings before they turn into seed bearing trees.  They used Buckthorn Blasters: http://landscape-restoration.com/, a great little tool for the homeowner/landowner.  Buckthorn control/eradication takes a lot of hard work followed by many years of dedicated follow up to keep it at bay.  

Peggy made amazing gumbo that she shared withus afterwards!  Buckthorn busting and great food with fantastic woods women.  It doesn't get any better than that!
