To get a snapshot of the state of King County’s noxious weeds and progress towards controlling them, read the 2015 Annual Report of the King County Noxious Weed Control Program.
While it’s true that there are still lots of noxious weeds in King County, it is gratifying to see that progress has been made. We’ve reduced the footprint in the county of some really bad actors like giant hogweed, and reduced the overall impact of more common weeds like tansy ragwort and purple loosestrife. This report reflects the hard work of numerous public land managers and municipal workers, commercial property owners, non-profits, volunteers and hundreds of homeowners and county residents. Noxious weeds know no borders, and this report shows what we can accomplish if we all work together on preventing their spread. Everyone benefits from noxious weed control!
