  4. 4. Criteria used in determining the priorities in honeysuckle control1. Is it a high quality habitat? There are mature trees, diverse native plants or rare species present.2 Is it accessible for efficient control? More acres can be restored.3. Is there direct public benefit? Includes overlooks, trails, recreation areas.4. Is it a seed source? Honeysuckle exposed to sun light on edges or in full sun produce seed.5. Is the area impacted by E.A.B. or deer? Invasive plants have more impact here.

  13. 13. Before control
  14. 14. After control
  15. 15. Open Soil invites invasivesSeed it or weep.
  16. 16. Fill the void!!!!! Grassy Matrix of Virginia Wild Rye and River Oats allow For selective control year 1 and 2
