Invasive Species Control

The Buck Hill Conservation Foundation has undertaken a Japanese Knotweed control project.

Following the guidelines of the Penn State Extension Services, a professional forest management service, along with a crew of volunteers, has worked to control the Knotweed that threatens stream banks, particularly along the Buck Hill Creek. The 2015 Forest Management Study located a large seed head along that creek, which has an Exceptional Value rating, and by Summer 2017, the seed head and downstream areas have shown a 98% reduction in Knotweed.
