Tennessee State Parks said in a news release that the so-called "Weed Wrangle" is set for March 2.

The event is part of a nationwide effort to remove of trees, vines and flowering plants that encroach on native plant species. Examples include protecting rivercane at David Crockett Birthplace State Park, removing garlic mustard at Warriors' Path State Park, and removing autumn olive at Panther Creek State Park.

Thirty-five state parks and two state natural areas are participating.
