The aliens in our line of work are all too familiar. Bush honeysuckle and callery pear rank high among species in the St. Louis region that are causing the most disruption among our natural and planned landscapes.

More from Gateway Greening’s event information below.

In this presentation, we will learn of the origin, reason for initial use, and why these species remain so prevalent in the landscape. We will discuss strategies for management, as well as suitable native replacement species. The goal is to provide a thought provoking and informative lesson that can progress a dialogue for our industries to take action.
