In order to help create healthy forests, the work can include: • Removing aggressive weeds (like English Ivy or Himalayan Blackberry) • Maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed Invasive plant Clean-up (rain or shine) 2821 Thorndyke Ave W We're pulling ivy and small invasive trees and black berry shoots coming back in the area we have replanted.
