Over the years, the Wildlands Restoration Team has pioneered many methods for the control of broom, pampas grass, vinca, cape ivy, English ivy, ice plant, eucalyptus, acacia, and many other species. Our booklet, “A Plague of Plants” highlights identification and control methods for the most troublesome invasive plant species in local wildlands.


In addition , we have authored and published many detailed articles on specific control methods and tools for many of these pest plants. These articles may not be distributed without written permission.
