Invasive Species Trade In Program
This fall the Hamilton County Invasives Partnership and Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District are offering a invasive species trade in program. For a limited time and as supplies last, property owners can show proof of removal of an invasive species on their Hamilton County property and receive one 5 gallon native species specimen for FREE! Use the form below to apply. Supplies are very limited so apply asap.
Invasive species must be properly identified by the homeowner. Landscape plantings of callery pear species, burning bush, Japanese barberry, and Norway Maple are the preferred species for removal but you can apply when removing other invasive species listed on the Official Indiana Invasive Species Council Invasive Plant List (found here). Trades are limited to one per address.
Questions? Email email@example.com
The three native species available for trade include American Hornbeam, Hop Hornbeam, and Tulip Poplar.
Did you know? Fall is a great time for invasive species removal work AND the best time to plant trees!
