Go Native Long Island

Weed control tips for gardeners, students, and professionals.

What is Go Native Long Island? A Long Island group of native plant lovers has embarked on an educational awareness endeavor to bring public attention to common invasive plants. This effort is designed to limit native species; decline and loss due to invasive, non-native species incursion. Through its archived contributed posts, GoNativeLI.com describes methods that successfully replace invasives with care-free and beneficial native species for home landscapes and local parks. Once established, some native plants, Mayapple for instance, will shade out invasive weeds.

An example of the volunteer work we offer:

  • Help with debarking autumn olive, which is the only way to prevent these invasive shrubs from cloning. Summer is the best time for this weed pull.
