A weed can be defined simply as a plant that is growing in the wrong place. Some weeds are declared priority weeds due to their impact on human health, agriculture or the environment. There is a legal obligation to control weeds in this category.

Other weeds are described as environmental. There is no legal obligation to control these weeds but in most cases it is good practice to remove them.

Whether it be identifying weeds, advising on specific control methods or property inspections for weed control planning, Brad Shultz Vegetation & Pest Management Coordinator LMCC is the expert you need.
