Invasive plants are those plants that do not occur naturally in ecosystems in British Columbia. They pose a threat to our native environment and are recognized globally as the second greatest threat to biodiversity. The presence of invasive plants can cause environmental and/or economic harm, and some species can harm human health. They are extremely aggressive, reproduce rapidly, and often out-compete crops and native vegetation in rangeland and established pastures in the BC interior.
In consultation with private landowners, First Nations, regional and provincial governments and other industry partners, Purity Farm and Garden offers a well-developed precision aerial application service to control and manage invasive weeds in sensitive grasslands and rangeland regions. We have treated thousands of acres of private grasslands used for cattle grazing, First Nations’ reserves for wildlife conservation, mine sites, and utility/ transmission interests’. Let our experienced professional staff work with you to develop a program to restore your grasslands and to prevent the spread of invasive weeds.
Invasive plants controlled include:
Diffuse and spotted knapweed
Orange and yellow hawkweed
