Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Non-native Plants of Piedmont N.C. Forests

Non-native plants become invasive when they spread uncontrolled to create negative ecological impacts for forest ecosystems. According to NC State Extension, invasive plants are present in one out of every ten acres in southern forests, and they have the potential to double their impact over the next 50 years. How can we slow this invasion? Join N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center, and Natural Resources Agent Phyllis B. Smith for a 2-hour webinar to learn how Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques can be used to create efficient and ecologically sound management plans through a combination of biological, mechanical, cultural, and chemical controls. Find out how to generate a plan that’s efficient, safe for the surrounding environment, and appropriate for the season. Professional Development Credits offered in the following areas:

  • NC Landscape Contractors, 2L
  • NC Pestcide License, D,G,N, and X
  • NC Environmental Education Certification, Criteria III and VI
  • Participants must attend the entire 2.0 hour webinar and complete a post-program evaluation to qualify for credits.
