10×10: Cutting Invasive Hardy Kiwi
Start your weekend off right and help eradicate destructive invasive hardy kiwi at the same time!
Gloves and tools will be provided, but we encourage you to bring extra tools if you have them
(loppers, pruning sheers, and pruning saws). Please RSVP to Noah Henkenius at
[email protected] for information on where to meet.
Hardy Kiwi is an exotic invasive ornamental that threatens forests in western Massachusetts
through complete domination of mature trees. Once it germinates, it will climb surrounding
vegetation and eventually kill its support. Hardy kiwi can grow over 20 feet in a year. It has become a major problem in places such as Kennedy Park and Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, and
now Burbank Park.
