New Fact Sheet from UW Extension Horticulture Department

Potential Imprelis Herbicide Damage on Conifers - Document contains additional links available for more information.


Wisconsin now has a set of voluntary urban forestry best management practices (UF BMPs) for preventing the introduction and limiting the spread of invasive species. These BMPs identify effective and realistic practices that can be integrated into routine urban forestry activities. Ultimately, everyone involved in the care and management of trees, shrubs and other vegetation shares in the responsibility of preventing and controlling invasives. By taking reasonable and practical precautions today, we can help protect Wisconsin's urban forests and other lands into the future.
