Our Mission

Ed's Buckthorn Control believes that it is our duty to oppose the invasion of destructive plant species. We will reverse the effects of these thickets of thieves and restore the forest we all share to the way Mother Nature intended. Buckthorn became a problem due to human complacency, and we owe it to our environment to give back what buckthorn has stolen.


"It was a great relief to have Ed come out to evaluate my yard. It was obvious that he is very knowledgeable and was able to put together a comprehensive treatment plan. He inspired a good deal of confidence that really set my mind at ease. Ed provided knowledgeable, friendly, and reliable service. Buckthorn is a huge deal in our neighborhoods to have someone who knows how to deal with it is a blessing. The icing on the cake is his desire and excitement in helping to restore the woods in my yard to their natural beauty. His pricing is very reasonable. His enthusiasm is contagious!" 


"This is an awesome new company with a passion for keeping our state's breathtaking forests, lakes, streams. You can put your trust in Ed. He is the best."


"Ed is dedicated and knowledgeable. Eradicating invasive Buckthorn is a serious matter and delaying its removal will cause a larger problem. Buckthorn spreads quickly and in my situation, a large wooded area located on my farm was overrun with Buckthorn in a very short period of time. Ed designed a specific plan of attack and worked diligently cutting, removing and applying special herbicide to the Buckthorn cut stumps. I appreciate Ed's excellent work and highly recommend him."
