Invasive species may pose a threat to the ecosystems they invade primarily because they drain the vital nutrients of competing plants for natural resources. They can even alter the food web. Unfortunately, many unsuspecting homeowners will plant an invasive species without knowing the consequences. So, what do you do if some of the plants on your property are invasive? What are some great alternatives to invasives?
In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will talk to Dr. Jonathan M. Lehrer about alternative trees to consider planting to add to the beauty of your yard. Stay tuned! Jonathan M. Lehrer is a native Long Islander whose passion for the natural world extends from early childhood. Currently assistant professor and assistant chairman in the Department of Urban Horticulture and Design at Farmingdale State College, he returned home eight years ago after completing his doctoral degree at The University of Connecticut. He currently teaches courses in woody plants, native plants and indoor horticulture.
