Have questions about invasive species in your area? Contact your local CISMA.
Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas are groups of non-profits, government agencies, businesses and volunteers that have come together to tackle the issue of invasive species in their regions. CISMAs can offer a range of services for preventing, identifying, reporting and managing invasive species. Wherever you live in Michigan, there is a local CISMA ready to assist you.
You must be the landowner, or receive written permission from the landowner, before proceeding with invasive species treatment. Learn more about applying for permits through EGLE (Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy).
If there are issues with visibility along county road ways due to vegetation present, contact the Road Commission for Oakland County at 877-858-4804. Along state highways (including highways with letters in their names, such as “M-1”, “US-24” or “I-75”), contact the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).
