What's that Weed?
Properly identifying that pesky weed in your lawn or garden is the first step to effective management.
The tools below walk you through the process of properly identifying common garden weeds.
Common Weeds in Plumas & Sierra Counties
Noxious weeds are plants that cause harm to agricultural lands, natural habitats and ecosystems. Most noxious weeds have been introduced into an ecosystem and, therefore, often lack the predators that would normally limit their growth. This allows aggressive species who can tolerate a broad range of habitats and compete well for resources to proliferate and take over new ecosystems.
Below is a list of noxious weeds found in Plumas & Sierra Counties. If you find these weeds in your garden or landscape, please follow the suggested guidelines for removal. If you need help with weed identification please contact us. For questions about controlling large patches of noxious weeds, contact the Plumas-Sierra Agricultural Commissioner.
Knapweed (Spotted & Diffuse)
While they may not cause the same kind of ecological damage as the weeds listed above, dealing with garden weeds can be frustrating and time consuming as well. Follow the management tips listed below for safe and effective weed management.
