NDInvasives.org serves as an informational website dedicated to providing up-to-date, relevant information to North Dakota residents, tree care professionals, and natural resource professionals about the current status of invasive tree pests that threaten the state’s forest and shade tree resources.

An "invasive species" is defined as a species that is:

1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration and
2) whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. (Executive Order 13112).
Invasive species can be plants, animals, and other organisms (e.g., microbes). Human actions are the primary means of invasive species introductions.
