20160501

CogongrassThe Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Cogongrass Treatment Cost-Share Program through July 29, 2016.

Cogongrass is an aggressive, invasive weed that displaces native plant species. The cost-share program helps private landowners stop the spread of the non-native grass.

 The Cogongrass Treatment Cost-Share Program is supported through a grant from the USDA Forest Service and provides reimbursement of 50 percent of the cost to treat cogongrass infestations with herbicide for two consecutive years.

To obtain an application form or to learn more about program requirements, contact a local Florida Forest Service county forester or visit the Cogongrass Treatment Cost-Share Program website.
