Noxious weeds are non-native plants that disrupt native vegetation because they have no natural controls and are able to adapt to varied climate conditions. Noxious weeds are an invasive plant, which are not native to our ecosystem – harming the environment, our economy and even our people. Swingle has extensive experience in weed management, particularly List A Species – those plants which are designated by the State Commissioner for eradication.
Though beautiful, chicory is classified as a noxious weed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Some of the weed species that are considered noxious weeds have lovely flowers and are used for medicinal purposes and are even edible. Of course, many are still very poisonous to humans and domestic animals. If you think you have noxious weeds in your lawn, take responsible action immediately by contacting Swingle.
Swingle is equipped to handle all kinds of vegetation management in and adjacent to ponds, canals and drainage ditches.
There are areas where you do not want any plants to grow. These areas may include gravel driveway surfaces, rock borders or a fence line. In residential settings, extreme care must be taken not to damage desirable plants or pollinators.
