Invasive Plant Management

The Thompson- Nicola Regional District (TNRD) covers ~45,000km2 of BC’s land base. It is comprised of a variety of ecosystems, such as Douglas Fir, Montane Spruce, Interior Cedar-Hemlock, Bunchgrass, and Alpine Tundra. These ecosystems support a rich diversity of plants and wildlife, are the basis for numerous industrial activities, and offer a range of recreational opportunities for residents and visitors. These values are being threatened by invasive plants.

An invasive plant is any non-native plant species that has the capacity to negatively impact animals, humans, and ecosystems. They are generally free of the natural predators that keep them in-check in their native habitats enabling them to have a competitive edge over desirable and/or native vegetation.

The TNRD has a series of invasive plant resources to help educate residents on invasive plants and their management.
