Early Detection, Rapid Response

Portland's Early Detection/Rapid Response (EDRR) Program focuses on controlling invasive plant infestations when they are very small. This approach increases the possibility of eradication and is much less expensive than trying to control well-established invasive species.


Containment Species

The city and its partners are mapping these species and managing them in limited circumstances

Watch Species

The city and its partners are concerned about these species, and encourage landowners to avoid planting them or to manage them carefully
