Managing Invasive Plants on LGI

From Island Services Chair: Jennifer McCoullah – 303-809-0493 (text only)

Tired of Brazilian Peppers and Australian Pines on your property? Element 4, a biodegradable poison that is sprayed on the cut limbs of the plant, is the answer. The park service uses the product to eliminate exotics and LGPOA has purchased Element 4 for our use. You can either spray the poison on the stumps or “skirt” the tree before cutting it down. Skirting is cutting a ring around the base of the trunk and spraying the poison on it while it still stands. The tree will die and be easier to remove.
