the fire hall belongs to the town of caledon so you may want to give them a call.
I'm pretty sure they'll take some pretty quick action
If its on private property its not a lost cause - it just becomes a bylaw issue. Contact the property standards officer. If you can rat on your neighbour for having a messy back yard, you can definitely have them ordered to remove noxious weeds.singlesprocket said:another wrinkle is that it might be on private property and the owner will do nothing.
That would be a novel way for land owners to keep unwanted riders off their property. I hope no one else figures this one out!singlesprocket said:another wrinkle is that it might be on private property and the owner will do nothing.
i've noticed that after that big ice jam flood on the humber two years ago the frequency of the plant increased. probally the seeds where dispersed from a isolated location/garden (can produce 100'000 seeds per plant). cutting the plant stimulates growth in the root bulb. a roundup type of herbicide is effective but the area might have to sprayed several times to kill sprouting seeds.Enduramil said:Hog Weed seen in the Humber by Old Mill.
