Attend a free Buckthorn removal demonstration

Saturday, September 12, 2020

Learn to identify common and glossy buckthorn and beneficial look-alikes you should protect. We’ll discuss updated best management practices, weed establishment vs native regrowth after removal. Which herbicides work and how can they be used safely? Earn a Buckthorn Blaster to take home, by cutting and treating buckthorn on site! Participants must wear personal protection equipment: safety glasses, long pants, long sleeved shirt, shoes plus long socks; and chemical resistant gloves (only butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, neoprene rubber or viton. No cloth, leather or household latex gloves). We will stay COVID safe: Stay socially distant, wear a mask. Tools will be sanitized prior to use.
