The Washington Noxious Weeds 2014 app provides the list of weedsthat have been designated as "noxious" by the Washington StateNoxious Weeds Control Board (NWCB).

A "weed" is generally defined as any plant that isn't where youwant it. However, "'. . .noxious weed' is a legal term for anyinvasive, non-native plant that threatens agricultural crops, localecosystems, or fish and wildlife habitat." Noxious weeds includenon-native grasses, flowering plants, shrubs, and trees, as well asaquatic plants that invade wetlands, rivers, lakes, andshorelines.

In Washington, noxious weeds are separated into threecategories:

* Class A noxious weeds are unrecorded in the state or arelimited in distribution and require eradication.
* Class B noxious weeds are designated for control in state regionswhere they are not yet widespread.
* Class C noxious weeds are either already widespread in Washingtonor are of special interest to the agricultural industry. Eachcounty determines the level of control required.

This app includes:

*Definitions of noxious weeds and the three Classes establishedby the NWCB
*Changes to the list in 2014
*A summary of noxious weed laws
*A physical description and photo, growth and reproductive habits,and control mechanisms for each noxious weed
