Land Plants - invasive

Knotweed (unknown species) (Fallopia sp.) on May 13, 2024

Submitter does not have a specimen
EDRR Status: Local expert notified

Description of specimen

The plants were about 4' high, slightly wilted, not yet flowering. The stand along the rock crevice was about 6-7' in length. I could not determine if it was a single root system or many individual plants. The roots were difficult to access, but felt dense, woody, and very securely rooted.


Thank you Erin for this report, the photo's indicate that this is indeed Japanese Knotweed. The Wilson River has acres of Knotweed starting above Lee's Camp, continuing up the North Fork Wilson, reaching all the way down to the confluence.
ODA began a treatment site last year, 3 mile stretch on the North Fork. I have treated some sites on the lower part of the Wilson. It is a ongoing process to address the entire river within Tillamook County.

Thank you very much for looking & the photos.
