Over 1,000 local and regional nurseries, landscape contractors, garden centers, and non-profit organizations, were invited to submit feedback before its finalization. The City will continue to conduct education for businesses and the public with information about why these species are prohibited and recommended alternative non-invasive species.
Regulated Species List: This regulated list represents species that (1) have the potential to cause harm to regional natural areas and public lands and (2) are in trade and, therefore, can be regulated. While there are many more invasive species that could cause harm in the region, this list focuses on species that pose the most critical threat. This list includes all cultivars except those that have been proven by the scientific community to be functionally sterile.
