Forest Service Activities to Control and Manage Invasive Species

Forest Service control and management activities are founded on integrated pest management principles that may include a combination of physical or mechanical, biological, cultural, and chemical techniques. This integrated approach also includes assessments of risk, identification of thresholds for action, and planning to reach the most desired outcome. Tools developed by Forest Service and partners support our control and management activities. In addition, the Forest Service works collaboratively with domestic and international partners to identify potential new techniques and biological control agents for invasive species control and management.
