The White Crew for Texas Conservation Corps did some invasive plant species removal at Brackenridge Field Lab this past week. They worked with ligustrum and nandina plant species which were removed with loppers and chainsaws. After the plant species were removed, the crew sprayed the stumps with herbicide to prevent the plants from re sprouting and becoming uncontrollable in the future. The white crew successfully knocked out large areas of ligustrum and nandina within the weeks end. This was a great experience for the white crew to work with Brackenridge Field Lab!
