Burnaby Invasive Plant Inventory and Update

Invasive Plant Inventory
City of Burnaby
2009 and 2018

DHC conducted a baseline invasive plant survey (21 species), spatial analysis and developed habitat restoration guidelines for specific City owned parkland and green spaces. The survey and mapping components of the study identified and documented the presence of invasive species while the analysis of this data directed the development of management recommendations and restoration guidelines for long-term invasive plant species management. The overall objective of this report was to provide the City with a framework for the future development of a locally relevant and cost-effective invasive plant management program and to propose selected pilot projects. DHC is updating the inventory over the summer of 2018. The update will form the basis for ongoing invasive plant management priorities over the coming years.
