Purple LoosestrifeHARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) recently updated their invasive plants list and have posted it on their web site. The list can be downloaded by clicking here.

At the quarterly meeting of the Pennsylvania Invasive Species Council on January 16, 2013, where the list was discussed, PLNA board members Andy Ernst of Ernst Seeds and Gloria Day of Pretty Dirty Ladies, Inc. raised the concern that the list was developed without an accepted scientific methodology, something that PLNA has been encouraging the Council to do for some time.

According to DCNR, the list is intended for use only on state park or state forest lands and is not intended to be a state-wide list with regulatory authority.
