Vegetation management is an essential part of keeping our environment healthy and sustainable. There are three primary types of vegetation management: mechanical, chemical, and cultural methods.
- Mechanical Methods – involve the physical alteration or removal of foliage via mulching, cutting, burning, pruning, or herbicide.
- Chemical Methods – involve using certain pesticides or fertilizers to maintain desirable vegetation.
- Cultural Methods – which include preventative practices such as improving air quality or soil conditions to encourage the health of desired plants and discourage invasive species.
All three types can be used together for a robust approach to efficiently managing cultivation and invasive species that preserve the environment and our planet’s resources.
