This webinar will start with a look at huisache, a native, invasive brush species found in the Gulf Coast Prairies and South Texas Plains. This fast-growing plant must be controlled as early and as often as possible, but just how much do we know about its ecology?  We will discuss the most effective control options and how to know which is right for your situation.
The second plant species highlighted in this webinar will be Juniperus pinchotti (redberry juniper).  The distribution of redberry juniper in Texas extends from the western Edwards Plateau northward to the Panhandle and westward to the Rio Grande.  We will discuss important factors that determine the best option for managing this root-sprouting shrub.
