Nuisance Trees and Invasive Species
In addition to clearing trees from lots prior to construction, much of our tree removal service in Loxahatchee involves removing nuisance trees and invasive tree and bush species.
Several of these invasive trees are well-known and easy to spot. Casuarina equisetifolia, commonly known as Australian Pine, is a towering, fast growing trees with an aggressive and thirsty root structure. They are easy to spot in Loxahatchee and the Acreage in tall stands and frequently uprooting sidewalks. Melaleuca is another Aussie import that is very resource intensive – they love water and are fast growers that take over empty lots and displace our native plants. Camphor trees, whose scientific nameis Droscorea bulbifera, is valued for their medicinal properties, but in another invader that can quickly get the upper hand on open spaces.
In addition to trees, there are a number of shrubs and plants that we are frequently asked to remove for our customers.
- Chinese Tallow – Triadica sebifera, also known as Sapium sebiferum
- Earleaf Acacia – Acacia auriculiformis
- Common Water Hyacinth – Eichhornia crassipes
- Buffalo grass – Brachiaria mutica
- Coral ArdisiaGiant Salvinia, or Kariba weed – Salvinia adnate and Salvinia molesta,
- Coral Ardisia or Ardisia crenata
- Mexican Petunia – Ruellia simplex
While some of these are popular landscaping plants, when left unchecked in the western communities these water and land plants can take over our native species.
Why Remove Invasive Species?
In addition to the impact on the natural flora and fauna of South Florida, these invaders can harm your property. Any tree and all trees that have root systems can potentially damage wells, drain fields and foundations. The highly aggressive trees mentioned above are of particular concern. They are water seekers and true enemies of drain fields. So when it comes to protecting your investment, consider the trees and shrubs on your land.
