Invasive Species Management

The Invasive Species Management Program assists Catskill landowners in the early detection, identification, treatment, and management of invasive species. The program consists of two sections: Tree Saver and Forest Saver.

Tree Saver

Are you concerned about one of your trees? Maybe it isn't looking too good and is too close to the home. Maybe it has sentimental value. Since removal of dead, dying, or hazardous trees can be costly (anywhere from $1,000-$3,000) the Catskill Forest Association created the Tree Saver Program to offer safe, highly cost-effective treatments as an alternative for removal.

Help save both your trees, and your wallets!

Forest Saver

Invasive plant species in our Catskill forests can take over the land you may be managing for wildlife, timber, recreation, maple sugaring, or a variety of other purposes. Fruit production can be reduced, water flow and nutrient cycling can be disrupted, and even the composition of the soil can be changed if left untreated. Invasives don't wait - and neither should you!

If you think you're seeing something that doesn't look quite right with your forest, or if you think that it may soon be overrun with an invasive species, we can help. CFA Staff are NYS DEC Certified to apply the most cost-effective, oil-based chemical treatments to your forests. Our ultra-low volume methods mean we use less product per acre, translating into less risk, and less cost for you. Our treatments help ensure proper recovery and protection to your forests.
