Weed Identification

Effectively managing vegetation starts with correctly identifying target plant species. This provides an accurate understanding of what you’re up against and lays the groundwork for an appropriate treatment program. Annuals, biennials, perennials, vines, woody plants and brush each often require a unique approach. Using herbicides, applied at the right time and combined with other land management practices, will help ensure success.

Below is a directory of commonly found invasive species. For each, there is a list of important identifying characteristics and features designed to aid vegetation management professionals. Also included are herbicide recommendations for plant control as well as considerations such as treatment timing that will help produce optimum results.
