Terrestrial Invasive Plants
The Orono Tree Board has been awarded funds to create Invasive Plant Control Practice Plans (IPCPP) for municipal owned public property. For example, an IPCPP was created in 2022 for the Jeremiah Colburn Natural Area and they are applying this year for funding to manage the invasive Buckthorn in the area. This year, they have applied to create an IPCPP for the High School public lot behind the track on the RSU #26 campus. Slowly, the Orono Tree Board plans to work through these conservation areas to manage the invasives.
