Crews are working in the Village to remove invasive plants from Village parks, trails and roadsides. The focus of these activities will be on Japanese Knotweed.
Knotweed is one of the world’s most invasive species and can significantly damage fish and wildlife habitat as well as damage roads and concrete foundations.
Herbicide is being used where required, and will be applied using the current best practices, including stem injection treatments that target individual plants and minimize effects on surrounding species. Cutting, mowing and composting knotweed is not an effective way of removing the aggressive plant and is likely to further compound the problem.
