Three Trouts Stream – Invasive Species

As part of the Three Trouts Stream community day, this Saturday 3rd February 11.00 – 14.00 at Charlesland Road rear of Greystones Centre, in addition to planting native trees, we will be identifying and working to remove any invasive species.

Invasive species pose a threat to our native wildlife and the functioning of our ecosystems. Invasive plants can harm native plants and other species which rely on them, by spreading pests and plant diseases, and competing for space, light, nutrients and water. This in turn can harm other species which rely on them, including birds, butterflies and other insects, and could threaten the survival of rare plant species.

The most commonly observed invasive species at the planting site are; Buddleia, Alexander’s and Sycamore.
