Chaffee County Weed Department

The Chaffee County Weed Department manages noxious/invasive weeds within the county according to the Colorado Weed Law and Chaffee County's Noxious Weed Management Plan. 

The Chaffee Weed Department will consult with private landowners to help manage noxious/invasive weeds on their property.  The department can help with best management practices to control noxious weeds.  If the landowner so desires the department can make herbicide applications on private land.  There is an hourly charge to cover equipment and labor plus the cost of the herbicide for this service.

The department is available to help or advise landowners and manages in Chaffee and Lake counties.
