Invasive Weed Management Begins May 23

Beginning the week of May 23, Clearview herbicide will be applied in overgrown and weedy areas (not manicured lawns) along various road sections, weather permitting and ending on June 23.

The Municipality of Meaford has partnered with Green Stream Lawn and Vegetation Management Incorporation to stop the spread of invasive weeds along rural roadways. Invasive species can choke out native plants, invade farmer’s fields and some weed species can even cause a rash or chemical burns when the plant stem is broken and touched with bare skin. Treating invasive plants with herbicide can be a very effective method of management. 

Clearview is an approved herbicide shown to be effective in targeted control of Wild Chervil along road allowances, as well as a number of invasive weed species including; Wild Parsnip, Wild Carrot, and Giant Hogweed, without negatively impacting other vegetation, humans, or pollinators.

The product will be applied using a broad cast spraying unit along the Municipal right of way (both sides) on identified road sections in the Municipality of Meaford.
