Did you know that on average, California acquires six new invasive species per year? This is one new species every 60 days. Invasive species, and non-indigenous plants, are not native and their spread can cause economic and environmental problems. Invasive weeds are often responsible for the drastic modification of native ecosystems and some plants can alter soil chemistry making it unsuitable for native tree and plant growth.

California boasts the greatest amount of natural botanical diversity of any state in the U.S., with nearly 5,000 native plant species. In addition to native species, there are about 1,300 non-native species that have become established in the state. About 200 to 300 of these are weeds and threaten agricultural crops, turf, and gardens.
