Spring is Here and So Are the Weeds

Please be on the lookout for the following noxious weeds.

“Noxious weed” means a plant that when established is highly destructive, competitive, or difficult to control by cultural or chemical practices, RCW 17.10.10. If you happen to see one, or both of the following varieties growing in your garden or surrounding common area, please remove using protective clothing, gloves and dispose of in a sealed plastic trash bag roots and all. DO NOT PLACE TOXIC WEEDS IN YOUR COMPOST OR TRASH UNLESS PROPERLY BAGGED AND SEALED. These are on Jefferson County’s hit list of noxious weeds to eliminate.

Poison Hemlock

Poison Hemlock

Below is a great blog that shows, with pictures and description, the difference between Poison Hemlock and Queen Anne ’s Lace. There are some similar features, but there is distinction in appearance. Note the difference in stem, flower and leaf patterns.

Go to Raven’s Roots Naturalist School Blog, July 2, 2015 edition showing pictorial differences between Poison Hemlock and Queen Anne’s Lace. http://www.ravensroots.com/blog/2015/6/26/poison-hemlock-id

Poison Hemlock can be deadly toxic to both people and animals. It contains toxic alkaloids which are found in all plant parts. For information about Poison Hemlock poisoning and symptoms, contact the Washington Poison Center at: 1-800-222-1222.

Here’s more info about the weed: http://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/WeedBoard/pdfs/BestManagementPractices/Poison%20Hemlock.pdf

Tansy Ragwort

Tansy Ragwort, a noxious weed, can be toxic to livestock

This noxious weed contains a toxin which can be lethal to cattle, horses and to a lesser degree goats and sheep. All parts of the Tansey Ragwort are toxic in both live and dried plant material. The young rosettes of Tansey Ragwort can be especially dangerous to grazing animals.

For information, go to the Northwest Washington Jefferson County Weed Control Board Fact Sheet regarding Tansey Ragwort. http://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/WeedBoard/pdfs/BestManagementPractices/Tansy%20Ragwort.pdf

Both Poison Hemlock and Tansey Ragwort are Class B noxious weeds in Washington State.

 

 

 

 

 

Status of the TVHA Board

The purpose of this note is to let you know the current status of the Board for the coming year.

The continuing board members whose terms will not expire until 2018 are Mike Burke and Cynthia Blacketor. The three seats up for election this year are those filled by Steve Frenzl, Vicki Derrenberger, and Debbie Wills. Fortunately, both Vicki and Debbie have decided to run for another two year term and we already have a volunteer candidate, Lloyd Gill, who has already taken over Steve’s ARC committee responsibilities, to run for a position.

However, the current status does not preclude anyone else from nomination to run for one of these Board positions. If you would like to serve on the Board please provide your name and a short Bio to our board Secretary, cablacketor@aol.com by April 21st.

Finally, thanks to Steve Frenzl for all the hard work he has done to serve the Timberton community as a TVHA board member and ARC committee lead.

Thank you

Mike Burke
