UMass Extension Landscape, Nursery and Urban Forestry Program

State Regulations Pertaining to Invasive Plant Management (A2)

Event date/time: 
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Place: 
DoubleTree Hotel

While landscape and turf professionals may be knowledgeable about the state regulations that govern the type of work they normally do, regulations that govern certain aspects of invasive plant management may be different. This session covers state regulations including the Wetlands Protection Act, the Rivers Protection Act, and pesticide regulations, including those specific to right-of-ways.

This workshop is Part A2 of the 2014 Invasive Plant Certification Program. In the last several years, there has been growing interest in invasive plants and their management.  While turf and landscape professionals might be very proficient in the development of a weed management program for turf and/or landscape, invasive plant management often reveals many new and unique challenges to these professionals. This 4-day program is intended to help participants meet these challenges when attempting to develop an invasive plant management program as part of their business. A certificate in Invasive Plant Management may be obtained by attending all four sessions and obtaining a passing grade on each. To earn the certificate, sessions A1 - A3 can be taken in any order, but must be taken prior to Session B, Developing an Invasive Plant Management Program. All sessions will be offered annually to facilitate earning the certificate over more than one year’s time. All sessions may also be taken individually.
