Alabama Cogongrass Aerial Photographs

Images by Pilot Charles Squires with direction by Regional Forester Gary Cole and State Forester Linda Casey


In open fields and forests cogongrass initially forms circular infestations that appear light green in summer and light brown in winter as can be viewed in these oblique aerial photographs. In later stages of invasion, circular infestations can merge and linear infestations can form along highways, fences, and around water bodies.
