Invasive Species Fact Sheets
Know Your EnemyHere you will find a list of Concord's invasive plants with links to a page on each one. Each page includes some background, the main problems, how to control the plant, and good replacements for your garden. Recognizing these plants is the first step to eliminating them. Some plants are not yet considered invasives in Concord, but you should keep an eye out for them just in case. You can see these here: Concord's Early Detection Species page.
As a reminder, any invasive species removal within 100 feet of wetland resource areas, including certified vernal pools, or within 200 feet of a perennial stream may require approval from the Concord Natural Resources Commission. Please contact the Division of Natural Resources before you begin.
