Best Management Practices Guides
The Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver in conjunction with Metro Vancouver has created the following Best Management Practices (BMPs) Guides for the treatment of select invasive species. These are the same best practices Coastal ISC follows in its operational work. Invasive species are hard to control and a multi-year, multi-method approach is always recommended.
While the following documents are geared towards technicians, the same strategies can be used on your own property. Always ensure to follow all provincial and local legislation, especially around the use of pesticides and around waterways. Note that in order to apply pesticides, you must be a certified pesticide applicator. For some pesticides, this is a free online course and for others, this requires a more intensive course and licensing. Always read and follow the label.
Please dispose of invasive plant matter responsibly. Bagged and taken to the landfill is the recommended approach. Click here for more information on disposal.
