Understanding and controlling alien vegetation in South Africa

It is extremely important to know the different alien species in your area. Identification is the first step. Small invaders can easily be pulled out by hand while they are still young. When these trees get bigger they are more difficult to control. It is important to remember that when foreign trees are taken out of the river system, they must be replaced by indigenous trees and shrubs. The area where they are removed should not be left empty as this can lead to soil erosion.
