Shown above are a few of the many nonnative invasive plants that threaten the forests of the South. These trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, and flowers invade an estimated 4,600 acres of U.S. land every day, with about half of those acres on public land. With their rapid growth and dense infestations, nonnative invasive plants alter the ecology of forests, affecting water and soil quality and leading to declines in both the numbers and diversity of native plants.
