What is Buckthorn?
Common buckthorn, native to Europe and Asia, is a highly invasive perennial understory shrub or a small tree that can reach heights of 20- 30 feet and 10 inches in diameter. This species was introduced to North America as an ornamental shrub and used for living fence rows and wildlife habitat. Since its introduction, it has spread aggressively across most of the northeast and upper Midwest and has become a serious threat to the degradation of native forest understory habitats where it out-competes native plant species.
Buckthorn needs to be treated quickly after it has been cut. We will either grind it out or chemically treat the stumps after it has been cut down. Unfortunately, this is a long process as the seeds from the berries are still in your soils, and will germinate the following year. Once you commit to having buckthorn cleared it will need to be done for approx. the next 2-3 years to combat it taking over again.
