Landowner Collaboration for Knotweed Control along the Cedar River

Knotweed, an invasive plant, has degraded soils and wildlife habitat along the Cedar River. It forms thick stands of bamboo-like stalks containing large heart-like shaped leaves that out-competes native vegetation. Through a grant from the King Conservation District, Forterra NW, a conservation organization, and Renton have partnered over the past several years in managing knotweed. More than 11,000 native trees and shrubs will be planted on public and private lands during 2017 and 2018 where knotweed has been eliminated. For further information, please contact the Urban Forestry and Natural Resources Manager at 425-430-6600 or by email.
