invasive species project

Harris Environmental planned, implemented, and monitored the effectiveness of targeted invasive weed control efforts within lands managed by the Redding Field Office that were affected by the 2018 Carr and Camp fires. We were tasked with investigating and understanding the distribution of invasive weeds populations, and tasked with prioritizing areas for implementation of treatment methods. We organized pertinent spatial and attribute data and assigned management priorities to specific areas and/or populations based on numerous factors such as feasibility of treatment and the species of invasive vegetation being treated, which resulted in the Carr and Camp Fire Weed Treatment Plan. We targeted specific species for treatment using herbicide application, which primarily included French broom (Genista monspessulana), stinkwort (Dittrichia graveolens), yellow star-thistle (Centaurea solstitialis), and tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima). These efforts have aided the preservation of healthy native plant communities and recreation resources on Redding BLM lands.
