It’s a Jungle Out There … Invasive Plant Workshop and Free Native Tree Giveaway

 Are you being strangled by the “jungle” in your yard or landscape?  If so, you don’t want to miss this invasive plant seminar and tree giveaway to be held at the UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Extension Office on Saturday, November 5, from 9 to 11 a.m.  The workshop will cover common invasive plants and trees found in area landscapes and educate participants regarding control options.  The seminar will also encourage the use of non-invasive native trees and plants and provide participants with free native trees to replace invasive ones in their landscapes.

Following the workshop, UF/IFAS Santa Rosa Master Gardeners will coordinate the free native tree giveaway.  Linda Dye, Master Gardener event coordinator, expressed appreciation to International Paper and the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council for providing funding for the program and give-away.  She stated that “Their assistance was vital in allowing us to provide another educational opportunity which emphasizes the importance of Florida-Friendly landscaping practices.” Workshop participants may choose from among magnolia, river birch, sweet gum, black gum, holly or live oak trees.  Limit of two trees per household.

This workshop is free and open to the public. The UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Extension Office is located at 6263 Dogwood Drive, Milton. Pre-registration is required. Please register online at or call 623-3868.
