Description: As highways cross the nation they provide safe travel for the vacationers, commuters, truckers, the military, farmers, congressmen, our families, and friends. Highway corridors provide safe passage for many plant invaders as well. Highway vegetation managers manage millions of acres of rights-of-way that cross your land. It is imperative that we understand each other's management strategies and cooperate as much as possible. If we do not, plant invaders that have no respect of political boundaries will prevail. This paper examines why roadside vegetation managers operate the way they do. Both negative and positive examples of current practices are noted. Future practices are predicted.
