Invasive Weed Workshop in Kent, WA
Invasive weeds not only inhibit the growth of or even kill your trees, they cause significant ecological harm by taking over ecosystems, crowding out native species, degrading wildlife habitat, and increasing erosion. Controlling these noxious invaders is a challenging but essential task for landowners. At this field practicum, you will learn to identify and control some of the most common invasive weeds that cause economic and environmental damage in forests, such as blackberries, knotweed, reed canary grass, butterfly bush, Scotch broom, tansy ragwort, and more. The practicum will cover both chemical and non-chemical control options. More information on our website: http://forestry.wsu.edu/nps/events/weeds_king/
