Invasive Woody Species

Controlling the spread of invasive species across the North Canadian Watershed

HB 2239 created the Terry Peach North Canadian Watershed Restoration Act that establishes a pilot program to manage and eradicate woody species in the North Canadian River Watershed to be administered by the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.

The primary purpose of this program is to perform brush management duties towards the prevention of loss of life and property around local communities and rural infrastructure within the North Canadian Watershed.

The Land Management Division of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission will lead the pilot
program and will be conducting the study to learn the best methods of controlling these trees
that can be used in other parts of the state.

Eastern Red Cedar eradication will be accomplished by utilizing prescribed fire and
mechanically creating brush-free zones.
