Invasive Removal

We specialize in removing Invasive Plants and Poison ivy.
While there are hundreds of invasive plants, there are 10 that are of major landscaping significance in the Hudson Valley—and Poison Ivy Patrol Specialty Landscaping gets rid of them all. Invasives include all of the unwelcome, nuisance plants that poison ivy often mingles with. If you have poison ivy, you probably also have other invasives because they like the same disturbed, neglected soil conditions.

Invasive plants have overtaken many native species, especially around the edges of our yards and roads. For a brief history and examination of how invasives came to take over our countryside, click here.

Poison ivy Patrol Specialty Landscaping knows every character trait of these unwanted invaders. We exploit their weaknesses and use custom tools and strategies for each invasive plant we find in our path. Some villains are more difficult than others but they will all fall in the end.

Every yard has differing terrain, sunlight, moisture and soil, which determine the best tactics to use in the permanent removal of invasives. We analyze the situation on your property, and carry out the eradication strategy in balance with what the budget allows.

Our team clears out invasives by the roots, and removes them from your property. We will protect the trees shrubs you want, and take everything else out.
We don’t use chemicals that only damage the soil even more. The soil needs to be healed, not medicated.

We take a holistic, comprehensive approach to your landscape. It’s safer for you, your family, and your pets.
