Weed Department

Willard peak

The Box Elder County Weed Department is dedicated to working with the public to help them identify noxious weeds on their property, and the most effective methods to treat those infestations. By doing this, we protect the agriculture, wildlife, and property values of our beautiful county!

The State of Utah Noxious Weed Act (Rule R68-9) states, “It is the duty of every property owner to control and prevent the spread of noxious weeds on any land in his possession or under his control”.

All individuals in the county are invited to join in efforts to identify and control noxious weeds. To learn how to recognize noxious weeds, navigate through our website and explore the many resources that we have shared.

The Weed Department realizes there are many noxious weeds in Utah and Box Elder County that may be familiar to the public. However, we have to focus on those that are funded and can be treated with limited resources. The Weed Board also designates specific weeds or areas as high priority.

Become involved to find and report certain noxious weeds to assist landowners and the Weed Department by filling out a Weed Alert Form.

We also have a Facebook Page for those that are interested in learning more about the weeds found in our county and exciting projects that we complete.
