Get Rid of Invasive Plants & Weeds in Westchester County
They’re out there. The problem of invasive plants is as close as your own backyard.
Maybe a favorite dogwood tree is struggling in the clutches of an Oriental bittersweet vine. Claw-like canes of multiflora rose are scratching at the side of your house. That handsome burning bush you planted a few years ago has become a whole clump in practically no time—but what happened to the azalea that used to grow right next to it?
If you think controlling or managing invasive plant species on your property is a daunting task, you’re not alone. Although the topic of invasive species management is getting a lot of attention from federal, state, and local government agencies and the media, the basic question for most homeowners is simply, “How do I get rid of non-native plants and invasive weeds in my own landscape?”

PLAN OF ATTACK
Three broad categories cover most tactics of invasive plant control: mechanical, chemical, and biological.
- Mechanical control physically removes invasive weeds from the environment by cutting or pulling the plants.
- Chemical control uses herbicides to kill non-native plants and inhibits The techniques and chemicals used will vary depending on the species.
- Biological controls use plant diseases or insect predators, typically from the targeted invasive species’ home range.
Several techniques may be effective in controlling a single invasive plant species. It’s best, however, to choose the most resource-efficient technique that minimizes the impact on non-targeted, native species and the environment.
