Central Oregon is getting inundated with noxious weeds; the warmer weather and rain are causing them to take hold and choke out native plants.  Deschutes County Vegetation Manager Dan Sherwin says  when removing the weeds either by pulling, cutting or spraying, you must  have a good replacement for the weeds.

"Once you get rid of those weeds, you need to get something back in the ground. Because if you don't get something back in, to revegetate it, like native grasses or other plants, if you you're just in a home residential site, you're going to continue to have that weed or some other weed come on, because something is going to replace it."  Sherman says fortunately, most weed spray products are made with salts and do not harm other plants, but it's best to use them early in the morning when winds are calm.  There is a community weed pull this Saturday:  the 9th Annual "Let's Pull Together" to help rid the common areas of the community of the noxious weeds.  It's a family friendly event and you can get more information at let's-pull-together-dot-com.
