Mesa County Weed Ordinance

  • Mesa County does not have a "general weed" ordinance regulating weed species that are not listed as "noxious" by the Mesa County Weed Plan or the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
  • Common examples of "general" weeds are Kocia and Russian thistle ("tumbleweeds").
  • Each property owner is responsible for managing the vegetation on their own property.
  • We encourage property owners to work together on neighboring parcels to help reduce the population of unwanted weeds in the area(s) of concern.
