Buckthorn Treatment at Beverly Park August 20, 2021
Common buckthorn is an invasive woody plant that spreads quickly through seeds distributed by birds and wildlife. It crowds out native shrubs and understory plants. The Village has been working to eradicate buckthorn at Beverly Park and will be expanding the efforts to include Riverside Park later this year.
