PWTB 200-1-57 Prioritized Non-Native Invasive Plant Management on Army Installations  


This Public Works Technical Bulletin (PWTB) provides an overview of non-native invasive plant species (NIS) management prioritization on Army installations, including general recommendations and specific examples of approaches useful for technical experts. Rather than provide an exhaustive treatment of every potentially relevant aspect of prioritization, the intent is to present sufficient information to stimulate greater consideration of the necessity and benefits of prioritizing NIS management efforts. The information provided will help installation personnel anticipate and avoid common pitfalls and errors associated with NIS management, particularly when confronted with multiple and potentially conflicting land use needs. The information provided should also help installation personnel hire or supervise an expert to conduct appropriate prioritization analyses.
