Removal Project: cutting and treating Japanese knotweed at Glacier Hills County Park.
Japanese knotweed is a very aggressive invasive species that tends to grow in dense stands, eliminating any native species that may be in the area. Japanese knotweed contains allelopathic compounds (chemicals toxic to surrounding vegetation), which is why they are so detrimental to native plants. This plant also poses a significant threat to riparian areas where it prevents streamside tree regeneration and increases soil erosion. If you see any Japanese knotweed please feel free to contact the AIS Coordinator Bradley Steckart for treatment options. He can be reached by phone at: (262) 335
