This is the beginning of what will be a struggle to get these invasive shrubs out of Cobmoosa Shores before they take over the area. For more information about Japanese barberry (and other plants problematic in Michigan), please consult the Michigan State University Extension Field Identification Guide to Invasive Plants.
We need everyone’s assistance! Remove these plants on your property first, then join in this and the following “planned pulls” when you can!
This effort is being coordinated by Jan Morrison, Trustee, and Barb Rafaill. In the photos included the bottom two are credited to the Wisconsin DNR
