I pulled Wild Parsnip again this year, and treated Bird’s Foot Trefoil – both in the lowest part of the prairie – where it meets the sedge meadow. Also, Mike cut and treated and removed a lot of brush and small trees that were invading the main part of the prairie.
5/26/2017 I discovered some big areas of Garlic Mustard in the woods just above the prairie, and spent a week or two treating and pulling it. This is the western edge of the woods at the bottom of the hill, right up to our property line.
5/28/2017 View of Pine Point Prairie and Big View Bluff. It’s easy to see the small invasive trees in the middle of the prairie.
9/11/2017 This is after the invading trees were cut.
