Invasive, Exotic and Noxious Plant Control
Peninsula Urban Forestry is a Washington State Department of Agriculture licensed Commercial Pesticide Operator.
We specialize in herbicide application within aquatic areas, right-of-way’s, ornamental landscapes, turfs, soils and stumps.
We also use mechanical brush clearing tools, tillers and our hands to physically remove some invasive plants.
We are highly educated, trained and intimately aware of the environmental impacts posed by herbicide over-usage.
We take great care and effort to verify our herbicide applications of noxious weeds and invasive plants are controlled, selective and used only when necessary.

Rappelling to Treat
We use our tree climbing experience to rappel and control the State’s Class A Noxious weeds in hard to reach areas. Steep bluffs, shorelines, mountain sides and lakes are some of our more exotic treatment areas.
We are fully permitted by the Environmental Protection Agency via a contract through State Department of Agriculture to spray in aquatic areas.
In accordance with State law, we record and track every instance of herbicide usage. Our aquatic treatments are recorded and provided to the State via our NPDES permit. These records are kept in our office for 10 years.
