Have Scotch Broom? The Noxious Weed Board has a loan program for specialized tools called the Weed Wrench™, the Extractigator™ and the Uprooter™. Landowners in Whatcom County may borrow these tools for a week at a time at no cost. The tools are especially useful in removing scotch broom plants, but can also be used on small trees or other woody plants such as Himalayan blackberry and spurge laurel.
If you would like to try out a Weed Wrench or Extractigator, please call the Weed Board office at 360-778-6234 to reserve one for pick up.
