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.
Invasive species represent major environmental and economic costs to the State of North Dakota. By putting our native flora and fauna at risk, invasive species threaten to drastically alter our immediate surroundings in urban and rural areas.
Invasive species affecting trees already established in North Dakota, such as the Dutch elm disease fungus, have had a major destructive influence on natural and urban environments, costing North Dakota communities millions of dollars. Some invasive tree pest species that are not yet in North Dakota pose an additional serious threat to tree resources across the state.
