Common buckthorn is a fast-growing shrub that spreads by roots and seeds, making it an excellent hedge plant. Unfortunately, these characteristics allowed it to become a successful invasive species. This plant has escaped from home landscapes and is now common in forests, old fields, parks and agricultural fence rows across much of the northern United States and Canada. In addition, buckthorn harbors soybean aphids, an invasive pest of soybeans. This publication includes information to identify buckthorn along with a small poster that features the plant’s negative environmental impacts.
