Since 2004, the Town of Vail has taken numerous actions towards the elimination and management of noxious weeds on public and private property.
By nature, noxious weeds are highly invasive, spread quickly to adjacent property, drive out native species and can reduce property values, making containment and management of these species critical. This year the town is increasing its efforts to combat invasive species by initiating a valley wide digital tracking and assessment program for each invasive species. This program allows the town and residents to determine zones of impact, identify relative severity of specific species, and subsequently allows the town to prioritize management areas and evaluate abatement efficiencies. In light of this new tracking and management plan the Town of Vail is asking for public support by submitting a Weed Management Form through the Town of Vail noxious weed webpage, if a Weed Ordinance Violation Notice was received. Supplementary noxious weed information is also available here.
