Yes, its that time of year again….its Tansy Time! Please pull and bag any tansy ragwort growing on your property. GBBC pays for the removal along the county right of way but property owners are required to remove it from their property. Please do not throw this weed into the roadway to biodegrade because the flower buds will continue to develop and spread. Tansy and other noxious weeds are taken at the landfill for FREE! If you see and noxious weeds growing, these can be reported to the Island County Noxious Weed Board or to a GBBC board member so we can work with the property owner to remove invasive weeds.
