We will support the eradication of invasive species from Pisgah in conjunction with the efforts of the Forest Service and other agencies.
For years we have witnessed the devastation of Pisgah’s beautiful Hemlocks by the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. The infamous Kudzu vine, Privet, and Japanese Stiltgrass are in evidence along the 276 Scenic Byway, replacing Trilliums and Lady Slipper Orchids on forest trails and drainages. Bittersweet grows unchecked in Bent Creek. Multiflora Rose grows in thickets in the forest and crowds out other species. One of TPC’s key goals is to attack these invading pests and maintain the natural ecological balance on the Pisgah.
