What are noxious weeds?

Washington's noxious weeds are invasive exotic introductions. None are native to Washington. These plants tend to spread rapidly and are extremely aggressive and difficult to control. Noxious weeds impact Washington's natural resources in a variety of ways. They pose public health hazards, threaten domestic and wildlife habitat, lower property values and agricultural productivity, and reduce our enjoyment of recreational areas. In short, noxious weeds are everybody's problem!
