Minnesota Buckthorn Removal Service
Buckthorn is a large shrub, but can grow to become a small tree with a diameter greater than 12 inches. It displaces or kills native plants in the sub-canopy and shrub-layer of woodlands in 68 of 87 Minnesota counties.
European and glossy buckthorn varieties are officially listed as restricted noxious weeds in Minnesota. It is illegal to import, sell, or transport buckthorn in Minnesota.
