Most Invasive Plant Species
Aggressive non-native plant species are among the greatest current threats to biological diversity along the Pensacola Scenic Highway corridor. These plants are able to spread rapidly and outcompete, and in some cases directly kill, native plant species. This is a clear threat to plant diversity, but also creates serious problems for native animals, which are not adapted to life in these new conditions. For more information about how to eradicate non-native invasive species from your property, please contact the Escambia County Extension Agent at (850) 475-5230.
