Controlling Japanese Knotweed

Controlling Japanese Knotweed

01/01/2013 - Present

Comité ZIP Jacques-Cartier and Comité ZIP des Seigneuries have joined forces to build understanding and awareness of the Japanese knotweed problem in communities, and have developed tools to reduce the impact of the invasive species. The goals are to stop its spread through preventative measures, detection and rapid response targeting the major pathways of introduction. In addition, creating and implementing awareness tools has helped facilitate action on the ground to mitigate the spread of Japanese knotweed.
