Invasive Plant Maps of Morris Park

We are currently working on the progressive removal of the invasive Japanese Angelica Tree (Aralia elata), and started a mapping of the local populations of that plant in Morris park.

This initiative is conducted under the guidance and supervision of the Philadelphia Fairmount Parks and Recreation Land Stewardship program.

We are truly inspired by the New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team work and website. Their invasive plants interactive map section is worthy of a careful study and reflection.

We thought it would great to start our own mapping of the invasive plants in Morris Park, using a similar template and format.

Click on the link “Aralia elata“, in the menu on the right, for an initial data mapping of the Japanese Angelica Tree in Morris Park.

Stay tuned for further plant mappings.
