Invasive Vegetation Control

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 on 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 PhragmitesPurple Loosestrife, and other non-native species before they have a chance to dominate a system.

Monitoring is a key component of 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 by drone technology. Once a problem species has taken over, large-scale management with marsh masters or aerial treatments may be required.

The service we received was top notch

When one of our stormwater BMPs was overtaken by phragmites, we called SOLitude for treatment. From the bidding process to the follow-up, the service we received was top notch. A year later, the Phragmites has still not returned. Considering how invasive this species is, this is quite an accomplishment!
