NCLC is planning an ivy removal stewardship day at our Skipanon Forest Habitat Reserve, bordering both sides of the Skipanon River in Warrenton. The spruce forest-and-swamp habitat type that characterizes the property is considered globally rare. We scheduled this stewardship day in the winter, when the deciduous vegetation has died back and it’s a little easier to move around, but you can still expect rough walking. Most of the ivy at Skipanon Forest is growing on large Sitka spruce trees, but we may find some on the ground as well. We’ll be using handsaws, loppers, and other tools to remove this invasive vine.
