Habitat Rx is a community-based watershed restoration program that focuses on the removal of invasive/exotic tree species, primarily Chinese Tallow, Chinese Privet and Mimosa, from private/public properties, coordinated by the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA), in Partnership with the Longleaf Alliance (LLA), UF-IFAS Extension and Florida Sea Grant. This program is funded by the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation.
What makes a plant or tree, invasive?
Non-native plant and tree species become invasive when they out-compete native species for water, sunlight, nutrients, and space. This is problematic because it reduces the number of native plant and animal species (biodiversity), creating poor quality ecosystems.
Do you have one of the invasive trees pictured (left) on your property?
If so, you may be eligible for the Habitat Rx Program!
