Find Out About Getting Buckthorn Under Control

Help eliminate invasive species in the Rochester, MN area

Since the mid-1800s, Minnesota residents have been battling buckthorn in their backyards. The invasive species arrived from Europe as a hedging material, but quickly turned into a nuisance.

The main issue with buckthorn is that it gets its leaves early in the year and maintains them until late fall. The presence of buckthorn in the area results in a number of problems:

  • It prevents light and nutrients from reaching other plants
  • It contributes to erosion by killing lower-growing plants
  • It lacks natural controls that would help to curb its growth
