    Location:

    Project Timeframe: 
    2013

    Project Manager:
    David Ellison, Aquatic Biologist and Regional Director

    Key Staff:
    Kyle Finerfrock, Environmental Scientist
    Derek Johnson, Lake Management Scientist, Fisheries & Wildlife Scientist & Certified Lake Manager

    Site Description:
    This property is a national park with Revolutionary War battlefield sites preserved and serving as year round tourist attractions in the Yorktown/Williamsburg area.

    Scope of Work:
    Invasive species vegetation control on multiple sites throughout the park to maintain the natural fauna of the area. The objective of the project was to eradicate invasive species growing in high profile areas of the park and provide maps of the areas treated. The budget allowed for a set treatment of acres throughout the park.

    Project Description:
    SOLitude Lake Management performed treatments on invasive species to include phragmites, Japanese stiltgrass, and Chinese privet. In the areas where these species were located the native vegetation was outcompeted and struggling to thrive. Aerial treatments were performed on the phragmites in predetermined locations in the park. Ground treatments were performed on the Japanese stiltgrass and Chinese privet. These areas were mapping using Garmin GPS units during treatment and maps of the treatment areas were created and supplied to the client.
