Controlling invasive plant species near Fish Creek Park

The Town of Gibraltar is looking for the best ways to remove ash trees killed by the Emerald Ash Borer in Fish Creek Park and control invasive plant species.  Part of the effort to keep invasive plants from spreading is now focused on a new parking lot under construction near the park.  Parks and Lands Committee Chair Brian Hackbarth says soil plowed up by construction work is vulnerable to invasives.


Hackbarth says preventing the spread of invasives can be done quickly with the right ground cover.


The removal of the hundreds of dead ash trees and the invasive plants were the topic of a joint meeting between the Town of Gibraltar Plan Commission and the Parks and Land Committee.
