Wild parsnip, and invasive plant, can cause blisters and burns to human skin.
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest announces the release of the forest’s plan to control non-native plant species this year. This plan can be found on the Forest’s website by clicking on the New Invaders newsletter link.
Non-native plant species can impact ecosystems by reducing tree growth and reducing food and nesting sites for wildlife. Some invasive plants such as wild parsnip even affect human health by causing blistering burns.
