Removing Invasive or Noxious Plants

Posted: November 7, 2013 by Bunce Rental in Home Improvement, Lawn & Garden

As we move into the “Spring and Summer” months, invasive or noxious vegetation is also on the move – many times full speed ahead!  These plants, in some cases, are harmful to animals and native vegetation; or in other instances, they just get in the way of your landscape.  If the plants are considered noxious, state and county laws will require property owners to remove or cut them down.  To help you learn more about how to get rid of this pesky vegetation, we’ve compiled a list of resources for dealing with a few of these unwelcome plants.

Keep in mind, that with many of the plants, there is no quick fix solution to getting rid of them.  In some instances, multiple methods will need to be employed over time, to keep them from growing back year after year.  Most of the resources listed below will include information on all of the plants listed below and others.  We’ve chosen different resources for each one to provide you with a range of options and information to help you determine the best methods for eradicating your invasive and/or noxious vegetation.
