BLM Weed Control Strategies and State Level Programs

The BLM works with state, federal, and local partners to reduce the spread of invasive species, with an emphasis on early detection of and rapid response to new invasions in order to reduce the need for larger, more expensive treatments later on. 

A successful noxious weed control program is essential to maintaining the health of our native landscapes and consists of the following goals:

  1. Prevention of weed establishment.
  2. Early detection and rapid eradication of new weed infestations.
  3. Stabilization and rehabilitation of disturbed areas.
  4. Integration of weed management measures into land management actions/authorizations.
  5. Implementation and monitoring of weed control measures. 
  6. Adaptive management for controlling new weed species and use of new and approved treatments.
