NATIVE NURSERY

This location holds our plant nursery where we grow native aquatic and land plants. We use this nursery to install native plants in areas that have been overgrown with exotic plants. Having native plants installed in lakes and wetlands are important and beneficial to the ecosystem of the area.

Native plants have been decreasing at a large rate. The can decrease by having the area overgrown with exotic plants. Once the exotic species have taken over the native plants area, all of the exotic plants must be pulled out from the roots and then the area must be sprayed to keep them from growing back. Then Lake and Wetlands takes native plants from our nursery and installs them in the areas where needed.

LOCATION BASED ENVIRONMENT

The Palm Beach area is close to the east coast of Florida and is more in the southern region. This climate is different compared to Florida’s northern regions. Florida has more non-native species than anywhere else in the world. This may be from birds traveling south in the winter, people releasing their animals or plants into the wild, or come from the coast. Approximately 31% of the plant species are non-native and 10% are invasive. In south Florida, it is more common to have invasive plants enter into the regions. One of the most invasive plants in Florida is Melaleuca. Melaeuca has invaded more than 488,800 acres which is around 50 acres a day.

IMPORTANCE OF NATIVE PLANTS

Having native plants instead of non-invasive plants in south Florida is beneficial in many ways to the ecosystem. With native plant species brings native animals that feed of the plants or live in them. Loss of a species will carry out the loss within other species as well. When there is an abundance of native species, the ecosystem for be more vibrant and healthy.
