Russian Olive

Russian Olive is a perennial shrub tree that has been introduced to the Northern and Western states of the United States as well as most of Canada. It is a non-native species that grows fast and can quickly take over everything else in the landscape. It also uses a lot of water and will deprive other native plants of the water and nutrients they need to thrive. For more detailed information, click the link below to visit the USDA website.
