Nonnative Species

Since the park has been repeatedly disturbed, opportunistic exotic plants have invaded the native woodlands, and in some cases, reached possible problem stages. Some of these problem plants are: Japanese honeysuckle, English ivy, kudzu vine, princess tree, ailanthus, bamboo, multi-flora rose, periwinkle and mimosa.

The park is actively working to control these exotic invaders.

While laying out the Chancellorsville History Trail, the park staff in places had to literally hack their way through a jungle of underbrush that resembled the Wilderness that the soldiers struggled through during the Battle of Chancellorsville.
