Controlling Kudzu

— Written By and last updated by

The N.C. Cooperative Extension Service is offering a free seminar on how to Control Kudzu. This event will be held online Thursday, October 15, 2020, from 10–11:30 a.m. via Zoom.

One does not have to travel far to see Kudzu cascading over trees and mountainsides throughout Western North Carolina. Over the years, property owners have inquired how best to control their own kudzu patch. Participants of this seminar will learn how Kudzu was introduced and spread in the United States, names of Kudzu, plant descriptions, various ways to use Kudzu, economic and ecological impacts, and finally various control strategies.
