Invasive Species Removal Program Continues
Applications are still being accepted for the Invasive Species Removal Program which is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to Kentucky landowners fighting invasive species adjacent or within 0.5 mile of public lands that have conservation and/or restoration values. The goal of this program is to limit the spread of invasive plant species from private property to ecologically important public lands. The financial assistance is awarded through contracts between private landowners and University of Kentucky Forestry Extension which will pay for 100% of the estimated cost (up to $10,000) of controlling invasive plants on eligible private property. The invasive species control practices are expected to be completed between July 2015 and April 2016. Payments to program participants will be paid after verification of practice implementation.
