LAP Biologists develop forestry and wildlife management plans for USDA-NRCS  financial assistance programs which includes invasive species control.
Florida Forest Service Landowners adjacent to Blackwater River State Forest:
Craig Iverson

Or find your County Forester
With owners’ permission, Forest Service staff can treat invasive plants on lands adjacent to state forests.  The Florida Forest Service’s county foresters can show private landowners how to identify invasive plants on their property and advise them how to manage them.  County foresters can help forest landowners to apply for cost-sharing to reduce the cost of managing their forest.
Longleaf Alliance
Cogongrass Program
Emma McKee
Cogongrass control efforts at the landscape level using a comprehensive database tracking system while working with private landowners who have infestations less than 1 acre in size to implement control efforts. This coordinated control and implementation plan will increase the chances of stopping the advancing front of cogongrass in the landscape. Initial efforts in Northwest Florida are centered around Blackwater River State Forest and Escribano Point Wildlife Management Area.
