GARDINER, Maine (AP) — Maine is looking to weed out invasive plants on farms and woodlands around the central part of the state.
The state Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry says some land owners who want to know more about invasive species on their properties will be eligible for a report with maps and management recommendations.
The program applies in Kennebec, Knox and Lincoln counties.
The state says invasive plants are becoming more common in Maine. Authorities want to prevent the plants from interfering with woodlots and farmlands. Common invasive plants include shrubby honeysuckle and Japanese barberry.
