Invasive and Noxious Weeds

Weeds have no boundaries. Jackson County has a climate well-suited to weed species and, unfortunately, invasive and noxious weed species have significant negative impacts on native plants, wildlife, and human needs. To reduce the negative impact weeds can have on recreation, agriculture, forestry and property values, we need to know what we’re up against and how to fight back. Follow the links below to arm yourself with knowledge!

The Jackson County Cooperative Weed Management Area has developed a “Most Wanted” list to help focus attention on those weeds which are the most damaging and/or have the greatest potential to be held in check in Jackson County. 

We suggest that landowners get help identifying their weeds prior to beginning a weed management program.  You can always contact us to develop a plan. We also encourage you to work with your neighbors, as well as the District, to develop a comprehensive area plan.
