Noxious weed survey season begins March 1

The Chelan County Noxious Weed Control Board reminds landowners that the noxious weed survey season begins annually on March 1.

This is the time of year to start watching for noxious weeds on your property. Early season noxious weeds in Chelan County include diffuse knapweed, myrtle spurge, hoary cress (AKA whitetop), rush skeletonweed, Dalmatian toadflax, kochia, wild carrot and poison hemlock. The Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board has a database of more than 140 noxious weeds if you would like to see what these weeds look like.

Noxious weeds can be highly destructive, competitive and difficult to control. These plants invade our croplands, rangeland, forests, parks, rivers and lakes, causing both ecological and economic damage that affects us all.

To learn more about noxious weeds and noxious weed control in Chelan County, contact the Chelan County Noxious Weed Control Board at 509-667-6576 or send an email to noxious.weeds@co.chelan.wa.us.
