Eco-teers Tree Tops Park Invasive Plant Removal

On Sunday, October 23, 2022, the Eco-teers volunteered at Tree Tops Park in Davie. The project focused on removing invasive plant species such as the air potato and the snake plant

These plant species spread ferociously and can displace and prevent native plant growth. A healthy plant community has a variety of shrubs and trees, but invasive plants cause biological pollution thus reducing plant diversity.

Glennys, Luisa, Ezequiel, and Bee of the Eco-teers successfully removed 384 pounds of these noxious weeds by shoveling out the roots from the ground while simultaneously pulling down any vines or clusters attached.

The fight continues at Tree Tops Park and much of Florida so the Eco-teers will be returning to help clear out more saturated areas. Would you like to participate in the next project? Email [email protected] to apply!
