WISCONSIN URBAN FORESTRY BMPs-INVASIVE SPECIES
Wisconsin now has a set of voluntary urban forestry best management practices (UF BMPs) for preventing the
introduction and limiting the spread of invasive species. These BMPs identify effective and realistic practices
that can be integrated into routine urban forestry activities. Ultimately, everyone involved in the care and
management of trees, shrubs and other vegetation shares in the responsibility of preventing and controlling invasives.
By taking reasonable and practical precautions today, we can help protect Wisconsin's urban forests and other lands into the future.
Wisconsin's Urban Forestry Best Management Practices for Preventing the Introduction and Spread of Invasive
Species is available at http://council.wisconsinforestry.org/invasives/urban/.
