Control of Non-Native Invasive Plants

Ralph White Company strives to keep our Florida lands managed in a way that promotes traditional land use and vegetation.

Due to many factors outside the land owners control, non-native or invasive species are encroaching on traditional vegetation and literally smothering “Old Florida” out. We have a wildlife biologist on staff to properly identify these invasive species, suggest treatment, and oversee application of herbicides in the habitat areas.

Our biologist also develops a plan and supervises the planting of formerly established natural vegetation. Many times we know of government-sponsored programs that will partially offset or reimburse the landowner for treating their land.
