Knotweed Reporting Form

Welcome to the Voluntary Knotweed Reporting Form, a tool aimed at tracking knotweed locations, an invasive species that poses a significant threat to our environment. By actively participating in this initiative, you can contribute to the ongoing efforts in controlling and managing the spread of knotweed.

At Gogebic Conservation District, we recognize the detrimental impact that knotweed can have on our ecosystems, native plant species, and infrastructure. Your voluntary reporting through this form will play a crucial role in gathering accurate data on knotweed infestations, aiding us in creating targeted strategies to combat its proliferation.

The purpose of this voluntary reporting form is to collect information about the presence and spread of knotweed in various areas. By sharing details on the locations where you have observed knotweed, you enable us to comprehensively understand its distribution, identify high-risk areas, and prioritize our mitigation efforts effectively.

We want to emphasize that your participation in this reporting form is entirely confidential. We will only take actions concerning knotweed with the proper permissions in place.
