Bradley Method for Managing Forest Weeds
Steve Burke, Program Manager, King County Noxious Weed Control Program

Learn about the Bradley Method of weeding in natural areas and how it applies to managing noxious weeds in forestland in King County. This method of minimal disturbance weeding without replanting involves selecting small areas of vegetation in such a manner that after weeding each area will be promptly re-inhabited and stabilized by the regeneration of native plants.

It prioritizes weed control first in areas that are least infested with weeds and moves methodically towards the most infested areas. By encouraging the regeneration of native plants in the newly weed-free areas, gains in control can be maintained.

**7:00-7:50 pm
