We have Scheduled our land-care company Nasim and Sons to clean up both green belts and inside Pond gate area. They will also be removing the debris piles that are currently inside the pond liner. They are not removing any vegetation or trees. They are picking up downed storm debris, fallen branches and trash that has found its way into the Green belt. This will now occur annually after the winter storm season with the option off adding it in as needed during other times of the Year. This project should only take one day and they are going to use vehicle to haul the collected debris out of the green belts. This is scheduled for Monday June 5-2017.
In addition we have scheduled True Green to spray the green belt areas for Noxious weed control. This will include both green belt areas and inside the pond gate as well. The primary focus of this application is to spray black berry bushes, scotch broom and other Noxious weeds that can take over the green belts if not taken care of. This is the same service you see the City of University Place doing to promote a healthy and safe environment in their forested urban areas and parks. This project is scheduled for the week of May 28th through June 5. This project should only take one day to complete.
This Friday May 26th we have scheduled our land care company Nasim and Sons to clean up our frontage along Chambers Creek Road. This is included in our landscape service contract and will be maintained on an as needed basis.
Remember park in your driveway not the street for the safety of our neighborhood.
From the Pierce County Noxious Weed Control Board.
Noxious Weed is the traditional, legal term given to non‐native plants that have been proven to have a negative impact on the environment, and are destructive, competitive, and/or difficult to control.
Noxious weeds arrive in our region in a variety of different ways. Many are escaped garden plants, others arrive through agricultural crops, contaminated hay or seed, or from vehicle tires along transportation corridors.
Once established, noxious weeds crowd out desirable vegetation, reduce agricultural productivity, compromise public health and safety, lower property values, increase flood hazards, and destroy native plant and animal habitat.
