Project Description

Start date August 2010
End date August 2012
Type of Activity
  • Mechanical removal of appropriate weed material 2 to 4 times per year. This will include use of hand tools and gas powered string trimmers.
  • Spot-treatment of non-native/invasive weeds 2 to 4 times per year with an herbicide approved for use around wetlands (i.e. Glyphosate product such as Aquamaster®, Telar® or other herbicides as appropriate to species present). Backpack sprayers and hand-wicks will be utilized for more precise application. Herbicide applications will be timed according to optimal plant growth stage and weather conditions
  • Monitoring of treatment success and re-treatment as necessary.
Deliverables
  • Apply herbicide to Perennial Pepperweed and other invasive plants in the 2.4 acre area along Road 102. This task will occur immediately after approval of the Scope of Work and will be repeated as necessary to eradicate Perennial Pepperweed.
  • Invoices and summary reports will be sent to the City contact after herbicide application is completed each season at a frequency of no more than monthly.
Goals

The long term goal is to reduce or eliminate non-native and invasive plants species.
