What is Knotweed and How Can I Get Rid of It?
Invasive knotweed is one of the toughest weed thugs around and it’s becoming all too common in King County. It chokes out everything else and increases erosion on creeks. Fighting it is frustrating without effective methods and tools. This workshop will give you the knowledge and methods you need to control knotweed on your property.
We will describe current grant-funded projects to control knotweed on county rivers and what homeowners can do to fight it on their own property. The workshop will explain why this plant is so tough to stop and what it takes to control it. 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 projects. WSDA recertification credits will be available (2 credits).
