Se eppc supports invasive plant list development

SE-EPPC Supports Invasive Plant List Development

Tennessee Example:

  • Rank 1 "Severe Threat" - Exotic plant species that possess characteristics of invasive species and spread easily into native plant communities and displace native vegetation; includes species that are or could become widespread in Tennessee.

  • Rank 2 "Significant Threat" - Exotic plant species that possess characteristics of invasive species but are not presently considered to spread as easily into native plant communities as those species listed as Rank 1.

  • Rank 3 "Lesser Threat" - Exotic plant species that spread in or near disturbed areas; and are not presently considered a threat to native plant communities.

  • Watch List A — Exotic plants that naturalize and may become a problem in the future. At this time more information is needed, and there is no consensus about their status.

  • Watch List B — Exotic plant species that are severe problems in surrounding states but have not been reported in Tennessee
