Invasive Buckthorn Removal Workshop

There will be a Buckthorn Training workshop at 12PM Saturday, May 20 at the Guys Spiers Park in west of town in Cameron. The purpose will be to educate landowners and friends on the threat of Buckthorn to our woodlots and hunting land and provide training on identification and control procedures.
In recent years Buckthorn has experienced a surge in growth resulting in significant patches of new and mature trees in woodlots where a few years ago there was much less evidence of its presence. Buckthorn grows several feet a year and in a few short years can leave a woodlot with a wall of 10-15 foot trees that neither man nor animal will walk through.
Buckthorn can be treated and removed year round though spring and fall are the best times of the year for identification and control efforts. A significant growth of Buckthorn has been identified at the park in Cameron.
The Cedar Lake Buckthorn Control Project and volunteers with support of a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will conduct the training.
