Weeds in Lewis County
Washington State Noxious Weed Lists
Every year, the Washington State Weed Board adopts a noxious weed list, which goes into effect on the first of January. In the following months, meaning the early months of each year, the Lewis County Noxious Weed Control Board adopts its own, county-level, weed list. This list includes a number of Class A and B-Designate noxious weeds that are received by the county as orders from the state, and are required for control. In addition, the county Weed Board also has the option to select additional Class B & C weeds to the list that are a local priority for control and education efforts.
Lewis County Weed Control will use noxious weed data from a variety of cources, inlcuding reports from other counties within Washington State, to identify the weeds that it believes should be considered to be high high priority, due to their likelihood of introduction, etc. The Board welcomes input from the public regarding weed selection to the county weed list, contact us for more information.
