Goodbye invasive species.
Sean Vollenweider of Applied Ecological Services removing invasive species at the new ADA Lyons Trail at the Lyons Community Center.

LYONS – Mark Beckwith, Andy Steiner, Sean Vollenweider and Andy Buss of Applied Ecological Services (AES) in collaboration with the Seneca Meadows landfill provided services free of charge to the Lyons Community Center for the trail that is being constructed for ADA access as part of the statewide TrailWorks initiative.

AES worked to remove invasive species including buckthorn, honeysuckle, and multiflora rose. These species which are not native to NY, shade and out compete native tree and shrub plants. The goal in this area is to restore the small forested area adjacent to Black Brook, to a native example of Western NY flora. The ecological benefits of this reclamation along the prolific Black Brook are another small part of the benefits that AES created and manages for the landfill at the Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve which also intersects with Black Brook. “The educational as well as ecologically beneficial components of this small area of removing invasive species and re-planting native species will have long-term positive effects for the local environment.” saidAndy Buss of AES.
