Native Invasive Species

Invasive Native Vines
The Chinese tallow tree is not the only invasive species causing mortality in our native trees. Throughout The Woodlands invasive native vines are causing trees to die. Currently The Woodlands, through the Integrated Forest Management Plan, is actively removing invasive vines and Chinese tallow trees in Grogan's Mill through a contract with Arbor Care Inc. This project will be a multi-year project aimed at promoting a healthy and vibrant forest through sound forest management practices. Coupled with this project will be the extensive reforestation of open areas throughout The Woodlands.

The Woodlands is currently inventorying and prioritizing where removal is needed, but we need your help in identifying these areas. Please contact The Woodlands Parks and Recreation Department at 281-210-3900 to report any invasive species and/or reforestation locations.
