Cloquet Supplement 1 Buckthorn Project


The overall theme of this proposal is early detection and rapid response to Buckthorn and other aggressive species on public state and county land. In general, treatment would include chemical and mechanical treatment of known infestations and yet to be discovered infestations. Existing buckthorn and other non-native invasive species populations are expanding and new infestations are rapidly establishing within the Cloquet Wildlife/Forestry Area.
