Invasive Species Removal and Targeted Herbicide application

Olmsted Parks Conservancy was founded to take special care of our historic park system, and our staff are deeply invested in providing healthy woodlands in urban spaces for all to enjoy and benefit from.  

The current beauty and biodiversity of our woodlands would not be possible without decades of extensive invasive species removal and targeted herbicide application. We will always use all the data and experience at our disposal to remove invasive species with the least damaging tools possible.  For park users’ safety, we only spray select, small sections at a time. If you feel uncomfortable recreating in an area that we’ve treated there are still many other sections of the park that are available.
