Invasive Plant Management: Japanese Knotweed


DBR is undertaking a proactive way of handling this invasive species by cutting stems at the base every two weeks throughout the growing season. Our goal is that by the first frost in the fall, we have exhausted the plant’s energy stores and they die off over the winter. We’ll continue this process for several more years with the goal of continually exhausting the plants while simultaneously planting natives that have the best chances to out compete the invasive ones.

Help us control this invasive plant that is encroaching on Duxbury Beach. Work takes place May-September. Check back Spring 2024 for more information.


Appropriate for adults and students age 16 and older.
