The weeds listed above are some that we believe will be trouble in the future. That fact alone makes them trouble right now! Each link will direct you to a photograph of the weed and some information regarding growth habit, impact, control and identification. In some cases, biological control is already being used on some of these weeds and a link there will direct you to the specific bio-control project for the species being discussed.
The most recent of these alerts is Japanese Knotweed. A notification of this developing problem was recieved in May 2006 by this office. The Weed Board has found a dozen small infestations here in the county, and we suspect there are many more.
