Buckthorn Treatment Underway

Buckthorn treatment is underway in our Greenways. 

On 10/31, Buckthorn removal took place on the Northern portion of Greenway D (Oxwood, Rye, Foxboro vicinity). This work included painting the tops of freshly cut stumps with Tordon to prevent the continued spread of this invasive species. 

This website from the Minnesota DNR has some background on Buckthorn: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/terrestrialplants/woody/buckthorn/index.html

In the future, we will plan to post scheduled buckthorn removal and treatments on the WGHA website so neighbors are aware in advance. If you would like to volunteer to help with the removal in your area, please contact greenways@walnutgrovemadison.org.
