Autumn Olive Management Update

SEPT 2015

Dear <<First Name>>

I just wanted to update you on the results of our autumn olive management yesterday. Three volunteers and Park Supervisor Dennis Wilson cut and treated 113 plants in a 6 acre area north of the second parking lot on Werderman Road south of New Haven Road. 
 
We have used GPSr equipment to track treated plants ever since we started managing autumn olive.  This allows us to return to previously treated plants to check for regrowth.  The process typically takes 3 years to completely eradicate a plant so it's important to be able to locate treated plants.  Yesterday, we also randomly checked 10 locations in a 21 acre area that had its third year of treatment last year.  No regrowth was seen on any of the randomly checked plants.  Our efforts paid off.  We will continue to monitor for regrowth.

A special heartfelt thanks to the volunteers!

Thanks for your support!
