Native plants on Long Island, NY are important for sustaining local wildlife such as birds and bees. However, invasive plant species are threatening the survival of these native plants and the wildlife that depend on them.

Invasive species such as Japanese knotweed, common reed, and phragmites are outcompeting native plants for resources and space, leading to a decline in biodiversity. These invasive species also provide little to no nutritional value for local wildlife, further exacerbating the problem.

Native plants, on the other hand, have co-evolved with local wildlife and provide essential food and habitat for them. Some examples of native plants on Long Island include beach plum, eastern red cedar, and black cherry.

To help combat the spread of invasive plants, it is important to properly dispose of yard waste and avoid planting invasive species in gardens or other landscaped areas. Additionally, supporting local organizations that promote the use of native plants and conservation efforts can make a significant impact in preserving the health of Long Island’s ecosystems.
