An invasive species by definition is a plant that is not native to the study ecosystem and has the potential to cause harm to economic or environmental well-being.
Invasive plants can wreak havoc on California’s community and ecosystems in many ways. These can overtake rangelands and crops.
Additionally, they can negatively affect biodiversity by eliminating the plants that it needs for shelter and food. Other cases may interfere with commercial or recreational traffic and increase the risk of fire and flood hazards.
As if that weren’t enough, there are plenty of excellent choices available. Many garden plants stay where they are planted and are not a problem.

As everyone knows, all participants must play their role in helping to control the land degradation.
