ESM Begins 8th Season of Noxious Weed Mitigation

EnviroSystems Management, Inc. is currently entering our 8th season of Noxious Weed Mitigation. Invasive and noxious weeds displace desirable plants that provide valuable forage for livestock and wildlife, eliminating critical habitats and affecting other natural resources that are important for threatened and endangered species as well as agricultural production. EnviroSystems utilizes all aspects of Integrated Pest Management to create specific successful strategies for each specific noxious weed eradication effort, including planning, mapping, education programs for staff and communities, and long-term monitoring.

EnviroSystems currently contracts with private property owners, the City of Flagstaff, Flagstaff Medical Center, Coconino County, Coconino National Forest, and Kaibab National Forest to eradicate numerous exotic plants, such as leafy spurge, diffuse knapweed, star thistle, Scot thistle, and Mediterranean sage. Most invasive species can be dug up by the root ball or sprayed with an herbicide in a localized application that does not harm native species. Our team of botanists is trained to recognize over 50 species of weeds, and we tailor every eradication initiative to the specific ecological conditions of the affected habitat.

As our 8th season of noxious weed mitigation begins, EnviroSystems encourages agencies and property owners to contact us for a Noxious Weed Assessment. EnviroSystems will send a staff botanist to your property to evaluate your noxious weed problem, if you have one. After this evaluation, mitigation strategies and costs can be discussed.

Call EnviroSystems today to stop the spread of invasive and noxious weeds that threaten our area and help conserve the integrity of Arizona’s natural ecosystems.
