“Integrated vegetation management is incorporating all the tools in the toolbox,” says Rick Johnstone of IVM Partners. “So you have choices you can make. You can hand cut, you can mow it, you can broadcast treat, you can selectively treat. What IVM ends up being is that you take those best practices incorporating them at the right time, so that it then takes it to the next stage where you take advantage of biological control.”
Vegetation management professionals like you are responsible for creating conditions that promote safety, provide a clear line of sight for safe operations and visibility, as well as reducing fire hazards.
Land Stewardship is also important part of your business. Protecting open areas from invasive plants prevents their establishment, proliferation and spread, assuring these species will not move to adjacent farms, forests and natural areas.
