What is a weed?
Most simply stated, a weed is a plant out of place. It is the name that humans have placed on "undesirable" plants that interfere with our land management objectives. A plant may be a weed in one place but an acceptable plant in another (example: St. Johnswort & Purple Loosestrife). Noxious weeds are weeds that, by law, must be controlled. They are usually the most invasive and aggressive of the weeds. They usually spread easily, reproduce quickly and in large quantities, and reduce populations of desirable plants. The federal and state Departments of Agriculture decide which plants to list as noxious.
