Wild Chervil- Invasive Pest

Another invasive plant specie to be on the look out for and aware of this summer is wild chervil. It is easily spread and characterized by its white delicate flowers and fern-like leaves. It can destroy hayfields, as it acts to replace native grasses and wild-flowers. It’s seeds are spread by mowers, wind and animals. For more information and images, check out this fact sheet by the Vermont Nature Conservancy’s Wise on Weeds (WOW) program. Any questions about this on any other invasive specie please let our office know.
