Massachusetts is no stranger to invasive plant species, and they can do a number on your landscape. When growth is slowed during the winter months, also called the “dormant season,” it presents the perfect opportunity to deal with these invasive plants before they have a chance to completely overrun your landscape. At Green Sphere, we’re adept with invasive plant management strategies, invasive plant identification, and most importantly, invasive plant removal. Here are some of the usual suspects in our region in regards to invasive species:
The importance of dealing with invasive plant species can’t be overstated. Invasive plants are one of the greatest threats not only to your own personal landscape, but to the natural ecosystem of Massachusetts as a whole. Invasive species are able to outpace, displace, or outright kill native species of plants. In all, there are more than 60 plant species common in Massachusetts that are considered invasive, most of which were introduced accidentally or for landscaping purposes, and then spread out of control. For more information on these invasive plant species, which have been banned from landscaping use, you can visit the Massachusetts Invasive Advisory Group’s page here.
When your trees and shrubs are dormant during the winter months, it presents the perfect opportunity to get a head start on pruning. When plants are dormant, the act of pruning is far less likely to spread any plant diseases and are less prone to injury. We also have the advantage of being more precise in our pruning without leaves obstructing our view, getting the perfect cut every time. Most importantly, however, your plants will thrive all the more in the spring when they have a clean foundation to awaken to, becoming healthier in the following season.

We encourage you to take advantage of your landscape’s dormant state and be proactive with pruning and invasive plant removal.. We also provide convenient seasonal services such as snow removal.
