SOLitude Lake Management has considerable experience providing lake and pond weed control and invasive species management on a wide variety of sites. Much of our work has been focused around controlling these plants in aquatic, wetland and marsh habitats, but we have helped many clients get control of problematic species on a variety of upland sites as well.
When left unmanaged, invasive species have the potential to destroy entire native ecosystems, affecting not only the plant communities within these systems, but also the animals, fish, birds and other living inhabitants that count on this habitat for their own survival. It is imperative to control aquatic, marsh, and upland invasive species including Phragmites, Purple Loosestrife and other non-native species before they have a chance to dominate a system.
Monitoring is a key component to any lake, pond, wetland or other invasive species management program. With regular inspections of your sites, you can identify and control problem species before they have a chance to proliferate. Early identification will also greatly reduce the expense associated with control, allowing for small scale selective treatments like hand-cutting and targeted burning or herbicide applications. Once a problem species has taken over, large scale management with marsh masters or aerial treatments may be required.
In support of our belief that lakes and ponds are a precious natural resource requiring protection, SOLitude is committed to providing sustainable and renewable solutions that maintain ecological balance in the workplace and beyond.
