Invasive Weeds


Invasive weeds are plants that grow aggressively, spread quickly and choke out native and other desirable plants from your neighborhood. They produce enormous amounts of seed, have a spreading nature and lack natural predators.  These traits enable them to dominate entire landscapes.  Invasive weeds decrease wildlife habitat and increase soil erosion and stream sediment, which is damaging to water quality.  Invasive weeds cause economic problems by costing millions of dollars each year in weed control efforts and lost revenues. 

 

Some common invasive weeds in the Lake Tahoe Basin area include: 

 

  • Bull Thistle
  • Spotted Knapweed
  • Yellow & Dalmation Toadflaxes
  • Scotch Broom
  • Perennial Pepperweed
