DNR Guidance on Strategic Mowing
to Reduce Invasive Species
(5/4/12) CLICK HERE for a letter from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources with recommendations of Best Management Practices for preventing the spread of invasive species. This letter provides recommendations to help your staff to join the effort in limiting the spread of invasive plant species and to comply with the regulations of Wisconsin’s Invasive Species Rule (NR 40). Invasive plants listed as restricted or prohibited under NR 40 may not be transported, transferred or introduced without a permit – and this includes their seeds, which are spread by mowing.
