Kitsap County Noxious Weed Control Crew

Kitsap County noxious weed control crew will be back on the island June 19-23 to do our annual noxious weed work along the roadsides and on private properties on island. Tuesday, June 19 and Wednesday, June 20 we will focus on posting the road side in accordance with City code 16.30.06 then posted sites will be treated on Thursday and Friday. We will work to remove plants via pulling where possible and do spot treatments on sites where needed. If you have a specific location you would like us to visit please send me the address of the sites you want us to hit along with the weed species! Private sites will be treated mostly on Wednesday. Thank you all for your help and your continued efforts to keep noxious weeds managed on the island. If we were able to get to your site a few weeks ago we may be returning to see how the sites look and to do some follow up treatments.

Our target plants are still poison hemlock, tansy, teasel, purple loosestrife and knotweed. If you spot any locations that you would like us to manage please email Dana Coggon at
