Invasive Plants - Our Trees Need Help!
Non-Native Invasive plants are taking over many natural areas in Spartanburg. These invaders are:
1. Exotic plants that are introduced into the local environment
2. Often imported from other countries, regions or continents
3. Aggressive growers
4. High reproductive ability
5. Displace native plant communities
Consequences of Invasives:
1. Ecological damage to native habitats
2. Loss of native plant species
3. Harm to native insects and animal species
4. Leading cause of population decline and extinction of plants and animals
The Trees Coalition Mission is to educate and engage the community in order to enhance trees in the Upstate of South Carolina.
