Depend on us to deal with invasive plant species on your property, including the Brazilian peppertree or Schinus terebinthifolia (also known as Florida holly). This is a shrub or small tree that can reach more than 30 feet in height and can live 30 years or longer. It is one of the most aggressive and widespread of the invasive non-indigenous exotic pest plants in Florida.
Brazilian peppertree forms a dense canopy that shades out native plants. It also produces allelopathic chemicals in the soil, which prevent other plants from growing. It displaces rare, endangered plants and encroaches on the nesting habitat of the threatened gopher tortoise.
Brazilian peppertree is a host for an invasive species of root weevil that damages citrus trees. In addition, it may cause a rash in some people.
Invasive species spread very quickly. They don’t belong in our habitat. If left to grow and thrive, it can be quite difficult to get rid of. Mulching is the most efficient, fast, and effective removal method – and should be performed by seasoned professionals like us.
