If so, this site was made for you. 

 Its purpose is to provide facts and photos that will help residents of northern Arizona to identify and control the 35 invasive plants most likely to be found in their yards and neighborhoods. Even if these invasive plants are not in your yard today, they are still a threat to your property if they are already growing along a nearby road, in an adjacent field or forest, or on your neighbor’s property.

Each of the 35 fact sheets included on this site will help you to identify invasive plants on your property or in your neighborhood, understand why they they are weedy and troublesome, and suggest methods for controlling them on properties up to 2 or 3 acres in size. Note that larger properties may require different control methods and the assistance of professionals.

In the Resources section of the site, you will find general information about eradicating invasive plants in your yard, your neighborhood, and the wider community. You will also find a glossary and additional references to help you learn more about invasive plants. It is our hope that this website will help you join the growing team of "weed warriors" in northern Arizona.
