Invasive plants in Maine are divided into three groups:
- Plant species currently considered invasive in Maine
- Plant species potentially or probably invasive in Maine
- Plant species highly likely to be invasive, though they are currently unknown from the state
Please note that this listing of invasive plants is informational only. It is intended to provide the reader with information about these species, including identification and potential control measures. It is not a regulatory list. Please refer to Title 38, Section §419-C Prevention of the spread of invasive aquatic plants for legislation regarding aquatic invasive plant species in Maine.
MNAP developed a series of invasive plant fact sheets, in cooperation with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. Links in the tables will take you to those fact sheets where they exist, or to fact sheets for these species from other areas. Click on any column header to sort the table by that column.
