Invasive species are animals and plants that are not native to an ecosystem and that cause economic or environmental harm. While not all non-native species are invasive, many become a serious problem. They damage Oregon’s habitats and can aggressively compete with native species for food, water and habitat. Choose from the species lists above to learn about specific species. Visit the Oregon Department of Agriculture website to learn about invasive plants
