Thinning, prescribed fire, and other treatments can restore ecological integrity in southwestern ponderosa pine forests that are at risk of unnaturally severe crown fires and bark beetle outbreaks. Such treatments can promote the survival and recruitment of native plants and animal species, but they also represent a significant disturbance that can allow invasive plants to spread. Invasive plants are a serious threat to the biological integrity of lands in western North America and elsewhere. Mitigating their impact must be a high priority during the planning and implementation of restoration treatments. This publication presents an overview of methods to prevent and control their spread.
