Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii) is an invasive plant in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. It has also been associated with Lyme disease, forest regrowth suppression, erosion, and more. We recommend removing it and not planting it on this Island as we do not have the population to remove invasive plants once they get loose. Invasive plants are pollution that reproduces on its own. NOTE: Lyme has now been CONFIRMED on Cape Breton Island.
