Terrestrial Invasive Plants

Use the LIEP program to learn more about terrestrial invasive plants common in Vermont. 

Terrestrial invasive plants impact Vermont’s ecosystems and economy. These species can displace native plant species, disrupt the food chain, and result in a loss of revenue from timber sales by reducing forest regeneration. However, management of these invasive species is possible enabling you to protect your land and Vermont’s natural communities.

LIEP into action! This program will help you locate, identify, evaluate, treat, and prevent the spread of terrestrial invasive plants you may find on your property.
