Title: Invasive plant species how they can affect trail access (and how you can help prevent their access)

Description: The natural beauty of our southern forest landscapes is under attack and our access to lands and trails are becoming increasingly restricted. Alien invasive plants are the culprits and they are spreading, occupying and controlling our lands like armies of invaders that they are. Kudzu is a world-wide recognized invader of the South, but few people sense the threat from other plant invaders that even occupy more land than kudzu, such as Japanese honeysuckle, Chinese privet, tree-of-heaven, and multiflora rose. There are actually over 50 non-native plant species invading temperate southern forests and many more in pastures, aquatic systems, right-of-ways, and croplands as well in South Florida. You can help stop their spread and devastative results.
