Trees Atlanta and Agnes Scott College have teamed up with Get Your Goat Rentals to bring a herd of goats into a small 7-acre forest known as Oakhurst Greenspace to graze on a variety of evergreen invasive plant species like English ivy and Chinese privet. Since the English ivy has been prominent in the ground layer in this forest fragment for so long, we will likely see the forest floor come alive this Spring with long hidden spring ephemerals, and newly germinated tree seedlings. The goats are a natural way to keep nuisance plants in check, and open up space for our native Piedmont plants to grow and spread. Come out and learn why the goats are here and how they are improving this greenspace.
