The Best Way of Eradicating Buckthorn With No Chemicals!

Buckthorn control is needed because buckthorn plants out-compete native plants for nutrients, light, and moisture.
Buckthorn can degrade wildlife habitat areas and threatens the future of forests, wetlands, prairies, and other natural habitats. Buckthorn contributes to erosion by shading out other plants that grow on the forest floor, and serve as host to other pests, such as crown rust fungus and soybean aphid. Buckthorn also lacks "natural controls" like insects or disease that would curb its growth. How to eliminate buckthorn is an issue we can win! Buckthorn removal is never been this easy.
