Here in east-central Wisconsin, common buckthorn, hands-down.  No other plant has the shade tolerance, fruiting (seeding) ability, allelopathy (soil-poisoning), crowding-out ability of common buckthorn.  Ruining forests right and left.

I have said to our state's DNR leader on exotic invasives...on a popular public radio show...that for one penny to be spent on a host of minor players, all the while pretty much having given up on the buckthorn...is a crime.  My comments were not popular on that show that day.

ps...where my woods and tree farm lies...58 miles due north of my driveway apron, there is no buckthorn.  Yet.
pps...the Texas guys sure seem insecure!

On my place, Bush Honeysuckle.
I've got the Garlic Mustard under control and its declining rapidily.
Buckthorn was just getting started, I have knocked it back significantly. It'll be rare in another year.
The Bush Honeysuckle is thick in 2-3 spots but there are plants everywhere.
Next summer I'll start putting a heavy hurt on it.

Trouble is with all these its a continuous battle.
Gotta keep after them, can't ever stop and think your done.

Pith poor red maple is out breeding all the hardwoods around me.  

Also bush honeysuckle. Seems mostly limited to steep well draining slopes, unlike the maple.

75 Acres of hardwoods that i want to try to optimize for HW growth, health and habitat. Also interested in creating a few small stands of fruit/nut trees and sample of different native species

Interesting thread.  Down here (Sacramento valley), it would be Star Thistle.  It thrives on sparse watering.  The edges of pastures have walls of this nasty stuff.  Goats seem to like it but causes big issues with horses.  Lots of water seems to do it in but then nut sedge takes over  ::)  Blackberries take over wherever the is an opening in the canopy.  Trees would have to be privet.  It pops up everywhere!

Up the hill at 5,800' elevation, there doesn't seem to be any non-natives surviving.  Just the Incense Cedar will take over as it is very prolific at that elevation.

Callery pear.  This crap is spreading fast and hard to control.  I'd rather have multi-flora rose than this.

I mean sweetgum is prolific but it is not invasive..just a hardy native maybe poking north of traditional range a bit as things warm up.

Our invasive species is Red Bartsia. It came from Germany back in the 1950 as crating straw for our Canadian Armed Forces base not far from here. It spreads in our hay fields , pastures and road side. This weed is very hard to control. Most people find it to be a pretty redish/purple flower in the fall time but there is nothing pretty about this plant. When I see small patches in my hay field , I will go out and pull the plants and burn them before the seeds fall to the ground to multiply...

Barabas bush takes over fields has white wind blown seeds, leaves smell like pungent  wet dog,  plant came from somewhere around eastern Europe just another @#@! hole plant like kudzu edited by admin  up the southern eco.  No telling what else will be loused  on us from abroad, lets see chestnut blight, dutch elm, fire ant, emerald ash borer, flying carp, Burmese python, mimosa, and on and on and on.  I am surprised they haven't put snakes in Herwayall yet.

North American plants...things like Canada goldenrod...are spreading around Europe and elsewhere.  Not a one-way phenomenon.

Black Locust, to plant or not to plant, that is the question.
