Become a Weekday Weed Warrior!

Controlling over 20 species of noxious weeds is one of our toughest stewardship duties. The timing of weed control treatments depends on the stage of plant growth and favorable weather conditions so we keep a flexible schedule. Projects may include backpack spraying, mowing with string-trimmers and hand-pulling - contact us to let us know which method you are willing to do.
