The natives are far less aggressive in growth. And, yes, most deer biologists consider honeysuckle a top ten food source and it is often bedded in, too.
It may seem like a chore but learning the difference between the natives and invasives can go a long way to bettering your habitat. I can share some identification information if anyone is interested.
I agree that I often overlook all the others because I’m focused on the invasive. What type of honeysuckle do the biologist consider a top food source? Or did they lump all honeysuckle into one category. I’d like to see the Identification information if you don’t mind.
