Yellowhead County’s Agricultural Service Department is committed to cleaning up the various species of weeds and encroaching brush on their municipal road right-a-ways and lands. Over the past three years the Yellowhead County Roadside Vegetation Control team has adopted a two year rotation throughout the County. We treated in excess of 1000 kilometers of roadsides per season with our two injection spray trucks, Honda UTV and ATV. All spray applications are GPS tracked so that we can monitor our progress, avoid sensitive areas and minimize our misapplications.
Each year the team starts in a new area, working east to west or west to east, to target the invasive species and encroaching brush at a different time of each year to maximize the programs efficacy.
If you see our team out there working, please feel free to ask questions about our program – herbicide application, rental equipment and weed identification, we can point you in the right direction!
