What Are Noxious Weeds?
Noxious weeds are non-native plants that have been introduced to Ravalli County through human actions both purposely and by accident. Due to their aggressive growth and lack of natural enemies, these species can be highly destructive, competitive, or difficult to control It is important to remember that noxious weeds are everyone's problem They not only reduce crop yields, destroy native plant communities and degrade wildlife habitat, they can also damage recreational sites, clog waterways, lower land values, and poison livestock The Ravalli County Weed District can assist you with identifying noxious weeds and give you advice on their control.
