Invasive plants can cause considerable damage to forest (and other) ecosystem, limiting productivity, diversity, access, aesthetic appeal. Control of these species can be expensive, and not done correctly can further aggravate ecological problems.
I have two recent presentations that might be of interest. One presentation was offered for the Cornell University Cooperative Extension in-service training on November 15 - 17, 2011 in Ithaca, NY. This training was for CCE educators and partners. The training session I participated in was hosted by the NY Invasive Species Clearinghouse.

A second presentation was offered as a ForestConnect webinar on November 16. That presentation is available here. I will post links to the archives of the webinar after the 16th.
