Local Noxious Weeds Information

The Noxious Weeds Act regulated by the Province of Manitoba sets out rules and requirements for control or destruction for different plants. Noxious weeds are designated to Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3 according to their threat level. Link to the list of Noxious Weeds in Manitoba can be found here.

Tier 1 weeds - Considered a significant threat, must be eradicated without conditions. 

Tier 2 weeds - Must be managed according to the size of the infestation. 

Tier 3 weeds - Have to be controlled if the weed’s uncontrolled growth or spread would have a negative impact on the economy, the environment or the well-being of residents nearby. 

Below are examples of some of the noxious weeds present in Manitoba that could present a risk to the R.M. of Wallace-Woodworth. View additional information on some noxious weeds listed below by clicking on the names.  

*Unfamiliar with noxious weeds? The App "Picture This" is a free user friendly App that helps identify plants. Simply snap a photo of the plant, the App will diagnose it to the best of its ability. Although the App is accurate most times,  we do encourage individuals using the App to do further follow-up to ensure the identification is correct.*
