Forest Management Plan & Recommendations

Garlic Mustard | An invasive species found near Lamure Beach
Garlic Mustard
An invasive species found near Lamure Beach

The Forest Management Plan is a 120 page report prepared by the County of Renfrew concerning Deep River's street trees, urban forest patches, and large forest areas. The bulk of recommendations are geared towards Town staff; however residents are encouraged to assist with invasive species (found on page 27 of the report) by taking garden waste to the landfills and/or pulling and disposing of plants that match the descriptions.

Of particular concern is garlic mustard found near Lamure Beach. To learn more about the plant, please visit this link: http://www.invadingspecies.com/invaders/plants-terrestrial/garlic-mustard/ Its spread can be prevented by brushing off any seeds that stick to your clothing or pets before leaving the area.
