Our Fisher Slough Preserve needs trees- and lots of them. Trees planted during this project will eventually help to shade reed canary grass- an invasive plant that grows and spreads rapidly throughout wetlands, pastures, ditches, and shorelines. Although tricky to remove, reed canary grass cannot tolerate full shade and will begin to die as tree roots compete for space and tree canopy prevents sunlight from reaching the grass. This will allow for re-colonization of the area by native wetland plants, restoring biodiversity and elevating ecosystem function.
