Invasive Pest Plant Removal "Event"

Saturday June 10, 2017

The Lake Worth City Tree Board holds its fourth Exotic Pest Plant Removal at the 17th Avenue North Natural Area, 1759 17th Avenue North 33460, on Saturday morning June 10th from 7:30 to 10. Exotic plants invasive to Lake Worth are prolific in this beautiful Southern Live Oak canopy.

The more residents that show up to volunteer at the June 10th invasive plant removal, the closer we get to removing exotic pest plants in the Natural Area.

The Tree Board wishes to thank community volunteers for their help at the April 29th Exotic Pest Plant Removal.

Tree Board Chair, Richard Stowe says “the early Saturday morning event is an opportunity for resident volunteers to see first hand how a seemingly innocuous common house plant like Pothos, or Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum) is a French Polynesian invader outdoors.”

Gloves and other tools will be provided.

The Lake Worth City Tree Board is a volunteer advisory board comprised of city residents appointed by the Mayor and City Commissioners. The City Tree Board advises the City Commission on policy. Members of the public are encouraged to attend Tree Board meetings on the second Thursday of each month 5:30 p.m. in the City Commissioner Conference Room.
