Natural Areas Weed Management Pesticide Licensing Exam Prep Slated for Aug. 18

Post Date:08/08/2017 10:19 AM

Management of Brazilian Pepper-tree, Melaleuca and other invasive plants is often necessary in South Florida’s natural areas. This vegetation, if not properly maintained, can lead to increased fire hazards, loss of native biodiversity and changes in hydrology. Improper management may also result in environmental damages and decreased aesthetic & property values.
