Invasive Plant Species

In 2011, Japanese Knotweed was added to the list of noxious weeds in BC and recently it was added to the Untidy and Unsightly Premises Bylaw No. 6982 which requires that residents dispose of this and other noxious weeds, when their presence is noted on private property.

Japanese Knotweed is one of over 35 invasive plant species that have been identified in British Columbia. 


Maple Ridge would like to let you know more information about this specific invasive plant, Japanese Knotweed and provide some overall information on what is happening in our community to control this and other invasive plants.
