Privet biology and management in southeastern U.S. forests webinar
August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This webinar will cover privet biology, ecology, and management as it pertains to forests in the southeastern U.S.
Chinese and Japanese privet (Ligustrum spp.) are now prevalent across much of the southeastern U.S. Once a prized landscape shrub, privet has become extremely common in many wooded areas, impacting wildlife, native vegetation, and biodiversity. Privet management is essential when reforesting harvested areas. This webinar will discuss different species of privet, and their biology and ecology. Different management tactics will be covered, including those for small and large privet-infested areas.
