Invasive knotweed is one of the toughest weed thugs around and it is becoming all too common in King County. It chokes out everything else, increases erosion and overwhelms riverbanks. Fighting it is frustrating without effective methods and tools.
This workshop will explain why this plant is so tough to stop and what it takes to control it.
- How invasive knotweed grows and spreads
- How and where to use different methods to control knotweed
- How to borrow a knotweed stem injector for use on your own land
- What is being done to fight knotweed on rivers in King County
Staff from the King County Noxious Weed Control Program will teach how to identify knotweed, how and where it grows, and how to control it effectively using a variety of different methods.
This is a hands-on workshop with practical control tips. Participants will be eligible to borrow the program’s knotweed stem injectors for use on their own knotweed.
Free and open to the public. Register online. WSDA license recertification credits will be available.
