New Treatment for Buckthorn Demonstration Trial Summer 2020

This summer Urban Forestry is partnering in a demonstration trial with BioForest, a forest pest management company, to manage invasive buckthorn shrubs using the bioherbicide Chontrol Peat Paste. The active ingredient Chondrostereum purpureum is a naturally occurring fungi in forest systems that acts as a plant parasite and colonizes the fresh cut stumps or wounds of woody trees and shrubs, ultimately killing the plant.
