Japanese Barberry

Although it is a popular landscape shrub, it has escaped into many natural areas.  The plant can significantly raise the pH of the soil and have tremendous effects on the soil's nitrogen level. They also have a high seed production and good seed survival rate. Deer do not eat Barberry and it has been replacing many native species. In addition, the Japanese Barberry provides a wonderful habitat for ticks through all life stages. To remove, you can hand-pull the Japanese barberry before it produces berries in July.
