THE TOWN NEEDS YOUR HELP
TO CONTROL TUMBLEWEEDS


WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Mow before the plant goes to seed. Compost or transport
while it is still green, otherwise you will spread more seeds.
Each plant is capable of dispersing 250,000 seeds.
Burn when plant is dry. (Check our pages on the burn window and fire safety.)

Plant competitive species of plants.

Tumbleweeds don’t like lawn or well-irrigated gardens.

Don't let the weeds pile up against fences or in ditches.

 

 

 

THE BEAST

There is a new truck down at the Fire Department. And it is very large.
Originally it was used in Iraq, but is now government surplus. It was acquired by the State of Utah from the Red River Army Depot. It was reassigned to Castle Valley due to a request to the State to replace Engine 34. It is being refitted as a brush truck and tender. Which means it will carry water, but will also have hoses and a water canon.
