New invaders are invasive plants that have limited populations within the TNRD, or are threatening TNRD borders. These plants are a top priority for treatment and monitoring. The goal is to eradicate New Invaders before they spread further. The TNRD will cover UP TO 100% of the cost of invasive plant control by a licensed contractor using herbicide, for select “New Invader” plant species.
How to Apply
- Ensure the invasive plant in question is on the New Invader Program Eligible Plant List
- Complete the TNRD New Invader Program Application Form and submit for pre-approval
- Make arrangements with a TNRD Noxious Weed Control Contractor from the TNRD’s Certified Contractor List
- The Contractor will invoice the TNRD directly for work completed under the New Invader Program.
