Honeysuckle Removal Cincinnati, OH

Invasive plant species pose a significant threat to ecosystems around the world. Often introduced from other parts of the world, non-native plants can spread quickly, out-competing native species for food, water, and space.

At Marvins Organic Gardens, we are passionate about removing invasive honeysuckle and other non-native plant species that threaten native plants and wildlife.



Restoration Is Our Mission

Woodland restoration is the heart of our mission. We begin by identifying and removing plants that overcrowd the forest floor. Our efforts help make way and allow native plants to thrive, creating a healthier and more balanced forest ecosystem.


With an eco-friendly approach, we cut invasive plants as closely to the forest floor as possible, weakening or killing them outright. Often, we remove the entire root system to ensure invasive species don't regrow. Then, we stack the brush in small piles, creating natural wildlife habitats and preventing soil erosion. If this approach is not feasible, we haul debris to our compost facility.

While some companies rely on harmful herbicides like RoundUp to eliminate invasive weeds, we prefer cutting or root removal. Sometimes, the plant will regenerate, and a second cut is needed to eradicate the weed brush.


Herbicides can be toxic to the environment when absorbed into the soil. Herbicides can harm beneficial organisms, disrupting delicate ecosystem functions. Additionally, the chemicals put the health and well-being of our staff members at risk, which isn't something we are willing to do.


Avoiding herbicides, we help protect the integrity of soil and water that plays a significant role in nourishing new native species' growth.

We Never Use Harmful Chemicals

You'll be amazed how many wildflowers, woodland trees, and shrubs will spring to life naturally after removing invasive brush and non-native plant species, such as honeysuckle, from your property.


Forest restoration is a transformative process. Removing problematic flora changes the forest composition immediately. However, it will continue transitioning back to a healthy forest over three to five years.

If you don't want to wait long to see results, we can plant new native trees, perennials, and shrubs to restore your property's beauty and balance while adding diversity.

While our team of experts is available to do work year-round, the late fall and winter, after leaves have dropped, is the best time to uproot non-native plant species. In addition, this time of the year is easier to navigate woodlands and remove invasive plants.

It would be a great pleasure to help you steward your woodland and bring it back to harmony with our comprehensive forest restoration process.
