Invasive plants are always on the move. Learning to identify these invasives that aren’t common yet—but could be in the near future—will help you locate these plants on your land before they become a problem.
Learn how to identify small carpetgrass (also called hairy jointgrass) with this website from the Lower Hudson Invasive Species Partnership. Click the links on “growth form,” “leaf,” and “flowers” to get close-up images of the plant.
If you just finished your invasive inventory, you may feel overwhelmed with the number of invasive plants on your land. Rather than try to deal with them all at once, focus your efforts to get the best chance of success.
