Maryland Ornithological Society’s Carey Run Sanctuary

Garrett County, MD

Wildlife hedges of Elaeagnus umbellata, Autumn Olive had been planted by the Maryland Ornithological Society Sanctuary in Garrett County to provide habitat and food for various bird species. When the Autumn Olive and Multiflora Rose began to spread and interfere with native bird habitat plants on site, MOS decided to remove the exotic species from the property.

Envirens, Inc. provided chemical and physical removal of the invasive vegetation. With close monitoring and retreatment we were able to control the invasives in two years.
