GARLIC MUSTARD FOUND IN YAMHILL COUNTY FOR FIRST TIME

For the first time ever, the district has found garlic mustard in Yamhill County. It is a Class A noxious weed in Oregon and other states and is now showing its ugly head in Yamhill County. Garlic mustard is a groundcover that can grow in established forests, wetlands, disturbed soil, and people’s yards. Once established, garlic mustard exudes a chemical which impedes shrub and tree establishment and hinders natural forest regeneration. View the  attached informational flyer prepared by Jim Robison, West Multnomah SWCD as a project for Clackamas, Clark, Multnomah and Washington Counties Cooperative Weed Management Area for details on recognizing and eradicating this weed in our county.

If you find garlic mustard on your property, please call Michael Crabtree at 503-472-6403 or email michael@yamhillswcd.org
