What is the Jersey Plant Pledge?
Invasive plants pose a serious threat to the wildlife, plants, and ecosystems of New Jersey. Unfortunately, many of these species are sold for landscape planting – some examples include barberry, Chinese silvergrass and Callery pear. New Jersey Audubon recognizes the following New Jersey businesses for becoming leaders in their industry. By taking the Jersey Plant Pledge, they have agreed to reduce the amount of invasive, non-native plants that they sell. These businesses are taking an active role in protecting New Jersey's native plants and wildlife.
