Composting invasive plants has to be done carefully to fully kill seeds and other potential propagules. ¬†Researchers in Texas built a composting facility to handle wetland invasive plants and report on their experience in an article in Invasive Plant Science and Management. ¬†Wouldn’t it be great to turn those invasive plants into compost to raise native seedlings?
